Lionheart - Lion By John Banovich

By John Banovich

Lionheart - Lion by John Banovich

A great vertical High End Giclle canvas of a large male African Lion walking right out of the canvas at you. As I was reading "The Artist's Magazine", one of my older issues, July/August 2006, to be exact, I came across an article on John Banovich. Apparently, in the early 1990's he sold his 10-year-old personal training and fitness business to devote his time to painting, conservation, and humanitarian causes. He is based out of Livingston, Montana, in Paradise Valley, and he often spends months each year studying and painting wildlife all around the world.

I was in awe at how precise his paintings were, so I read the whole article, finding out that he paints his animals life size! As you will see by looking at his work, his paintings look so real. Every little detail is perfectly placed, showing his pride in his work, and his love for wildlife. Banovich seeks to help save our wildlife. From saving the Siberian Tiger, to the Lion Pride Initiative, he has done his share of contributing his time to the things he cares about.

Banovich says... "At least there's an awakening that's occurring, and we have the ability as artists to paint nature, landscapes, wildlife, whatever. We're telling a story, and all those pictures will be revered a hundred years from now because so many of those places will be gone."

While the artist can't know the future, he's working hard to change it by creating groups to save existing wildlife species and creating paintings that come as close to preserving the real thing as they possibly can. He has been to Africa fifteen times, and has visited most of the major continents. He believes in painting the wildlife in their own habitat, capturing their photos... not their lives.
