About Martin Aveling

Martin Aveling Portrait Picture

Martin 'Mart' Aveling is one of the nicest people you'll meet. He also happens to be an award-winning artist (2021 David Shepherd Art of Survival Award) and one of the UK's most celebrated and talented wildlife artists.  

Mart has been instrumental in exploring the world of wildlife artivism and its role in environmental storytelling. “Wildlife Artivism is a growing trend in conservation, where elements of fantasy are combined with reality to unearth hidden truths. It tackles the big issues faced by our planet and its wildlife through storytelling embedded in art".

His clean and contemporary style celebrates the detail in his animal subjects, and negative space is often manipulated to give them environments. Through his drawings, Mart aims to raise the profile of all wildlife around the world and to generate support for its most vulnerable. 

From the sale of his art, Mart has helped raise nearly £50,000 for various wildlife conservation charities. 

You can learn more about his life and work on his website.
