Stefano Zagaglia is an Italian artist based in Milan. He is enchanted by Africa and using classic watercolour and oil paint to capture its beauty.
“My boundless love for nature comes from my childhood”, says Stefano. “For me Wildlife Art was a discovery; until about ten years ago I did not even know what it was. I discovered it in Africa, and it immediately fascinated me”.
This wonderful continent has become his inspiration point. “My first impression when I approached this kind of art was characterised by awe and wonder and it has become a way of life”.
