It is believed his paintings have ended up all over the globe and now owners of originals by the renowned conservationist and painter are invited to join an exclusive new art network called the ‘David Shepherd Originals Circle’.

The art hunt is being coordinated by the UK-based charity founded by the artist: the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation (DSWF).

The circle will allow lovers of David’s art to share memories and record their original artworks in a new catalogue. An interactive map is also being built, to showcase the global reach of the artist’s work.

David Shepherd (1931-2017) was best known for his stunning paintings of endangered wildlife, such as elephants and tigers. His originals depicting steam trains and vintage aeroplanes are also highly sought-after by collectors.

Plans are afoot to organise special events and art exhibitions for circle members. Members will also be offered exclusive opportunities to buy and sell original works.

If you own an original David Shepherd painting or sketch and would like to join the owners’ circle, you can register on DSFW’s website at davidshepherd.org/circle.
