John Seerey-Lester

Godfather of wildlife art

Born 1945

With work hanging at the White House and in permanent, private and Museum collections, throughout the world, John Seerey-Lester, The Godfather of Wildlife Art, has become one of the most renowned wildlife and plein air artists in the world today.

Since moving to America over 25 years ago and making it his base of operation, he has continued to travel the world in search of images. Preferring to paint from life, he has visited such diverse locations as Africa, China (where he painted the rare Giant Panda in the wild), India, The Arctic and Antarctica as well as Central and South America. It was a visit to East Africa over 30 years ago that give birth to his interest in wildlife.

Before this, in his native England, John gained enormous popularity through his paintings of nostalgic scenes of Victorian and Edwardian times. Now he has combined that early fascination for historic themes with his continuing interest in wildlife to capture in paint, the golden age of the White Hunter and hunting heritage of North America. In a new series of paintings John is revisiting the late 1800’s and early 1900’s in what is becoming his most successful work.

John has gained a reputation over the years for producing images with a mysterious and a mystical appeal, now he has taken this skill to produce a remarkable series of paintings depicting historic hunts and safari legends. He has also published five books, the latest is called Campfire Tales published in 2014.
