“Fading Giant” of Stefano Zagaglia overall runner-up at the Wildlife Artist of the Year 2016 in London
Stefano Zagaglia is an Italian wildlife artist who has always loved nature and especially animals. He graduated in architecture and worked in design and advertising for many years. After travelling in Africa his desire to paint animals took over. He developed his own technique of painting with watercolour, pastel, acrylic and especially oil for his animal portraits.
Stefano’s love for African wildlife and the primeval beauty of the African wilderness is what he aims to express in his paintings. His work “FADING GIANT” was recently selected as overall runner-up at the Wildlife Artist of the Year 2016 in London.
“I’m happy and proud that my work “Fading Giant” has been selected”. Thanks to David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation for including and choosing my work.”
Stefano Zagaglia’s work “FADING GIANT” was chosen because it depicts everything that the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation is trying to protect, in painted form. Judge Hazel Soan: “Without words it says ‘something grand is disintegrating before our eyes’ and the white space will be all that is left.”
