Print Artist: Carl Brenders
Carl Brenders was born in Belgium in 1937. He studied and trained at the Fine Art Academy in Antwerp and later in Berchem. His early career was spent as an illustrator of childrenís books on natural history.
Today Carl Brenders is recognised internationally for his fine art works of wildlife. His paintings and art prints are in art collections in North America, France, Spain, Holland, the UK and his native Belgium. He has produced wildlife illustrations for more that 20 books in a series entitled The Secret Life of Animals. Brenders has also been included in the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museumís prestigious "Birds in Art".
Carl Brenders combines his dreams, senses, imagination and his strict attention to anatomical details to create his paintings and limited edition prints. The art works produced by Carl Brenders reflect his respect for nature. He creates precise paintings and art prints successfully capturing the extreme realism of the birds, mammals and habitats. Brenders paints every detail of the wildlife images - feathers, hair, leaves or pine thorns. He says, " Nature is already beautiful, already perfect. That is why I paint the way I do with so much detail and so much realism - I want to capture that perfection. They get into my skin"
The wildlife images of Carl Brenders start life as pencil sketches. From these initial sketches Carl produces mixed media paintings of water-colour and gouache with a technique developed during the last 30 years. His art works, which encompass every intricacy of nature, devote equal attention to the detail of the wildlife subject and its habitat as well as to the mood created by the light.
In September 2002 Carl Benders was honoured by the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum in Wisconsin, USA, as their Master Wildlife Artist.
