Darryn Eggleton

Born in South Africa in 1981, an interest and passion for the natural world has always been with Darryn. His earliest artistic inclinations were evidenced by drawings of wildlife created during family trips into the African bush. Darryn was fortunate enough to have the opportunity of living in the Kruger National Park, a perfect foundation for his chosen subject. It was there that the journey began. Drawing inspiration from nature, and always being intrigued at the small, intricate details within each animal.

He enjoys the challenge of creating these details with a paintbrush, often spending hours on a small section, trying to get the pattern and texture perfected. These are the driving forces behind his paintings and he is always striving with each new work of art to gain perfection of the chosen animal. Making use of a cinematic cropping of the animals, sometimes using the perimeter of the canvas to achieve a feeling of the subject being up close and personnel. His goal is for the subject to appear to project further than the plane of the canvas, creating a presence, and placing the viewer somewhere in the physical experience of the painting.
