Christopher Pope – Wildlife Artist

Christopher Pope creates wonderfully realistic portraits of Australia’s diverse bird species and wildlife. His skilful representations of his subjects are often mistaken for photographs, capturing delightfully intimate encounters with shy and elusive subjects, leaving a lasting impression on the viewer.

The artist has been commissioned several times to illustrate Australia Post stamps and has won several awards, including Australia Post Most Popular Stamp Issue for the series Australian Songbirds (2009) and has been a finalist in the prestigious Waterhouse Art Prize twice in recent years.

Christopher paints to illustrate the beauty and fragility of our natural wildlife. He is member of the A.F.C. (Artist for Conservation). His biography is below in full.
