BRAD WILSON

Now suddenly I was facing subjects, who, for the most part, did what they wanted with no regard for me or my artistic agenda. Specific verbal directions were replaced by patient waiting and observation - a kind of meditation in the middle of organized chaos.

Brad Wilson is an American who has dedicated his art to the world of wild life. For a long time, Wilson was a professional photographer in New York and Santa Fe, and worked in show business; he then made a decision to pursue an unconventional goal and focus his efforts on addressing more complex and profound issues with his work, rather than the simple needs of commercial photography.

To date Brad Wilson is the only photographer to create such portraits of wild animals with unrivalled craftmanship, and with such detailed elaboration. Each portrait is issued exclusively by the artist, in a limited edition that is part of the “Affinity” series. The name of this series is intended to convey the most important message of his art. The artist encourages the viewer to reflect on their relationship with the animal, which is profound in the moment and primal in its roots, and to feel the importance and value of the connection that unites the human and the animal.

The world-famous German publisher, Prestel, has released a book called “Wild Life”, dedicated to the art of Brad Wilson, where alongside the striking portraits of wild animals are notes on their population on the planet, allowing the reader to see that many of these creatures are on the brink of extinction.
In the midst of our modern human civilization with all its technological complexities, animals still remain stark symbols of a simpler life and a wilderness lost. Perhaps these images can stand as a testament to this other fading world, and remind us, despite the pronounced feeling of isolation that too often characterizes our contemporary existence, that we are not alone, we are not separate - we are part of a beautifully rich and interconnected diversity of life.
The works of Brad Wilson were first introduced in Russia by Surround Art Gallery to celebrate the achievements of modern art and the opportunities it provides to convey the glory of nature at an unprecedented level of artistic expression. Brad Wilson creates flawless animal portraits, which have impressed the most sophisticated art connoisseurs around the world due to their authenticity and living force. Art critics around the world and gallery owners across the largest cities noticed Wilson quite a long time ago. Only now has it become possible to observe Wilson’s skillful, sumptuous and outstanding work in Russia, namely in Surround Art Gallery which is an exclusive representative of the artist in this country.

His work has been widely published around the world, appearing in articles and advertisements by Paris Match, Vanity Fair Italia, CNN, CBS News, World Wildlife Fund, Greenpeace, Audubon, Microsoft, Apple, and Sony. He is currently represented by Surround Gallery in Moscow, as well as galleries in Paris, Madrid, and Santa Fe. His first book, Wild Life, was released by Prestel in October 2014. After more than a decade in New York City, Brad moved to New Mexico where he continues his photography surrounded by the beauty and tranquility of the southwestern deserts.
