In its 35th anniversary year, David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation (DSWF) is delighted to bring a new world-class art exhibition to Los Angeles this October highlighting the plight of elephants due to the ivory trade.

End of Ivory: The Art of Survival exhibition is a powerfully curated three-day show featuring thought-provoking work that celebrates elephants as sentient beings but also highlights their desperate struggle for survival in the face of extinction.

Drawing on DSWF's rich art and conservation heritage, we are honoured to partner with our dedicated and internationally renowned Wildlife Art Ambassadors – Emily Lamb, Mandy Shepherd, David Filer, James Kydd, and Simon Max Bannister – whose mission is to raise awareness and funds to save endangered species through highly visual and emotive media.

Provocative paintings, sculptures and photographs created by our Art Ambassadors will be on display and available for sale at Christie's Los Angeles from Wednesday 23 to Friday 25 October 2019, with a percentage of all sales going directly to DSWF to fund key conservation projects in Africa and Asia.

The exhibition opens to the public on Wednesday 23 October and runs until Friday 25 October, from 10 am until 6 pm each day.

DSWF Art Ambassadors Events
Every two years, DSWF holds an art exhibition to celebrate the outstanding skills and talent Outlining the concept in its inaugural year of 2017, our Founder David Shepherd said:

"In choosing our Art Ambassadors, we looked for people whose lives and work are absorbed by nature and epitomise what it means to be a wildlife artist and conservationist; someone who lives and breathes nature and who inspires others to become advocates for conservation. The Ambassadors within the Art of Survival programme are some of the world's leading wildlife artists, sculptors and photographers and whose work is inspirational."

About the Ivory Trade
Every 20 minutes, an elephant is killed for its ivory. From 2011-2017, 144,000 elephants were killed across 15 African countries. It is predicted that the African elephant will go extinct within the next two decades if poaching continues at current rates and unless urgent changes are made to protect them and close ivory markets for good. Japan and the EU are the two largest remaining ivory markets in the world.  They continue to fuel the illegal wildlife trade and the tragic slaughter of thousands of elephants each year.

In his words:

Wildlife artist and conservationist, David Shepherd said:

"I set up my Foundation with the sole purpose of giving something back to the animals that helped me achieve success as an artist. At a time when the world's wildlife is under such devastating pressure from expanding human populations and the illegal trade it seems fitting that we take a step back and reflect on the sheer beauty and diversity of our natural world and what could be lost if we do not truly appreciate the value of the world around us.
