'Treetops' by Tony Forrest
Gallery Rouge is excited to announce the commencement of a new relationship with the United Kingdom’s most talented wildlife painter, Tony Forrest. Tony has excelled in his practice through his dedication to capturing the essence of the animal kingdom, from the creatures which inhabit it to the endangered environments in which they live. Now entering into his 25th year of professional painting, the artist continues to travel worldwide to observe his subjects in the wild. Speaking of his first encounter with a wild tiger, Tony recalls;
“Seeing the wild gorillas of Rwanda was the most awe-inspiring wildlife experience of my life – until I saw my first wild tiger. This is the only time I have ever actually cried my eyes out, right there on the spot. Having decided long ago that I would probably never get the chance due to their ever declining numbers, I went to Bandhavgarh and Pench National Parks in Central India for a two week stay just to look for tigers. With one of the best tiger trackers in the business, Digpal Singh, I had several sightings. The first of which was a very tearful experience and will quite possibly remain the principal highlight of my entire wildlife career. I have seen many big cats in many countries around the world, but nothing will ever come close to this. Like ghosts in the night, they appear from nowhere, then they are gone.”
Gallery Rouge is proud to present four new paintings from the artist created especially for clients and collectors; ‘Golden Eye’, ‘Identity Crises’, ‘Secret Jaguar of the Amazon’ and ‘Treetops’ (shown above).
Tony has exhibited and sold through some of the most prestigious galleries in the country including Halcyon Gallery, Harrods and Mall Galleries; collectors have flown across the globe to add his works to their private collections, most notably from the United States, Japan and India.
