$8,450.00 CAD

"Bugged Boss" is a new oil on canvas painting by renowned wildlife artist James Corwin.  (Limited Edition of 95 prints available for purchase here.) James Corwin's art is highly collectible and a great investment— his masterful depictions of iconic wildlife will fill your home with their lifelike beauty, energy and warmth.

Grand scale at 30" x 40," this stunning work of art vividly depicts a majestic cape buffalo with his constant companions, the oxpecker birds. James, who travels to exotic locales to paint native wildlife, tells us, "In Africa, oxpeckers and cape buffalo share a symbiotic relationship. The oxpeckers eat the ticks and parasites off the buffalo and the buffalo benefits. These oxpeckers are flying around the face trying to get at the nose for some fresh pickings, which I am sure irritates the buffalo a bit…"  And about his painting, "I have to say this new painting is by far my favorite and best work to date. From a technical perspective, it challenges all my previous work with the deliberate execution of paint and detail while using a myriad of colors within the value ranges… the effect is natural yet beautifully colored. Also, it brings more life to the form resulting in 3 dimensional effects; that is why the muzzle of the cape buffalo seems to be looming out of the canvas."

Cape buffalo (Syncerus caffer caffer), also called African buffalo, is the largest and most formidable of Africa’s wild bovids (family Bovidae) and a familiar sight to visitors of African parks and reserves. The Cape buffalo is the only member of the buffalo and cattle tribe (Bovini) that occurs naturally in Africa.

About James Corwin

James Corwin designs distinct oil paintings through a unique balance of gestural paint techniques and precise detail. Primarily focused on wildlife he creates a finely detailed subject often emerging through obscure and atmospheric landscapes. Avoiding static portraits and general themes in wildlife art, Corwin aims to engage the viewer through his dynamic compositions that stir emotion. “Wildlife in nature is elusive and I desire to capture this reality.”

With an appreciation for both fine detail and contemporary art, Corwin exquisitely marries the two in each painting with detailed subjects and loosely constructed backgrounds often exposing the underpainting and raw canvas.

Corwin gathers inspiration and references from his frequent travels to exotic destinations around the world. A recent trip to South Africa opened his eyes to threats of poaching on wildlife. A portion of his sales support conservation projects throughout the world.

Corwin has established himself as a widely collected artist at a very young age. His artwork is collected nationally and internationally as he participates in prestigious exhibitions and auctions throughout the year. He is the youngest artist to ever participate in both Dallas Safari Club and Safari Club International in Las Vegas. Typically he paints 10-12 hours per day, 7 days a week. He also has two studios overlooking the white sandy beaches of Long Island, NY and located in Lakeside, MT overlooking Flathead Lake and the Swan Mountain Range.

By providing utmost quality and innovation in his painting, Corwin creates a sustaining legacy of integrity and loyalty in his art and conservation.

Corwin was born June 24, 1991 in Honolulu, HI. Two years later he moved to Montana where he grew up in Kalispell. He participated in a 2-year International Art Program. Through this he was able to explore his creative talent in painting and develop several techniques and approaches to his work. Corwin was awarded a $30,000 grant by the John and Ann Taylor Foundation to continue painting. Since then he has acquired numerous exhibitions and awards. He attended Marietta College and Montana State University for Studio Art and Art Education.

Corwin was voted 2nd best artist of the Flathead Valley!
