Animals too Are Unique: Focus on 5 Artists who Devote their Talent to that

Animal. They are the object of our fascination from a young age. They have been an undeniable inspiration of artists for centuries from the Lascaux painting to contemporary artists.  

.ART adopters have been enchanted and visually stimulated to put their talent to showcase the beauty, presence, gravitas of these living entities that belong to the global fauna. We showcase here 5 artists who showcase their love & passion to animals and are devoted to making them shine no matter if they are family members or wild creatures.  


Animal: living organisms that feed on organic matter, typically having specialised sense organs and nervous system and able to respond rapidly to stimuli.

CARINA KRAMER  

It is from a young age that this artist started her journey depicting the animal kingdom. Her passion and talent grew with the years as much as her genuine interest & passion for the subject she represents. It is their anatomy and behaviour that enhance and direct the way she will create – “my oil paintings there seem to be areas of painterly excitement and others, which I approached in a more gentle manner. My watercolours on the other hand require a very soft and patient attitude since they involve a lot of thin and delicate layers.”
