Christopher Pope's Gallery

Christopher Pope

Christopher Pope creates wonderfully realistic portraits of Australia’s diverse bird species and wildlife. His skillful 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 a finalist in the prestigious Waterhouse Natural History Art Prize twice, amongst other awards. He has been commissioned numerous times to illustrate Australia Post stamps, winning several of their awards, including Most Popular Australian Stamp Issues in 2009 and 2016. His art hangs in various Australian and overseas collections.

Born in South Australia, Christopher’s love for art and wildlife began early, having spent his childhood in small country towns. Although he has studied illustration and art in various forms, he is basically self-taught and is often regarded as one of the leaders in the field of wildlife art in Australia.

Many of his paintings have been reproduced for fine art limited edition prints, with each being hand-signed and numbered by the artist.

Christopher paints to illustrate the beauty and fragility of our natural wildlife, wishing to draw attention to the importance of conservation of our fauna.
