Beast ( New Retrospective Book Of John's Paintings ) By John Banovich
By John Banovich
BEAST THE COLLECTED WORKS OF JOHNN BANOVICH How does it feel to meet the chill stare of a man-eating lion? To feel the hot breath of a hungry polar bear? To test the protective gaze of a mother gorilla? Through his world-famous art, John Banovich unearths the answers in his first book The first time John Banovich picked up a paintbrush as a young boy in Butte, Montana, he knew he was meant to be an artist. Something in his DNA compelled him to study, marvel and translate to canvas the animals that roamed before his pure artist's eye. The story of his early struggles and inevitable successes will inspire you to believe that dreams really do come true. And his commitment to conserving the animals and wild places brought to life in his paintings will serve as an example to us all. As you journey through the 112 reproductions of his stunning paintings, 43 expertly drawn sketches and 73 telling photographs, you will see his life and paintings progress and mature. Page after page, Banovich`s body of work will give you the rare chance to look into the very heart of the BEAST. Years of worldwide travels to explore wild animals at close range have allowed him to capture the essence of their spirits on canvas. Each intimate painting reveals something about the subject, John Banovich and ultimately the viewer. "I have dreamed of this book for the past twenty years. A place to share many of the adventures I have been privileged to experience on my journeys around the world. It will introduce you to the creative process that began at age 7 and tell the story of how I evolved to be an artist. It will give you an intimate glimpse into the world of the most exotic Beasts we are blessed to share the planet with.....and reveal the challenges facing the animals living in these wild places. From journal entries, field sketches, to over 100 finished paintings this book gives you an unparalleled look into the eyes of the BEAST!" -John Banovich BEAST features 264 large-format pages and illustrates the dramatic artwork.
