Peter Gray

Peter Gray is a multi-award winning artist.

He was born in Zimbabwe in 1950 and sold his first artwork when he was 12 years old. Living near the Hwange National Park and a stone’s throw from the Matobo Hills National Park, Peter grew up with a passion for these wilderness areas that became the nurturing ground for his career as an artist.

"The home my father purchased in 1947 was an old farm house in a bush area that later became a suburb of Bulawayo. The vegetable garden was raided regularly by kudu, bushbuck and other creatures and I remember my mother and the staff running around defending the crops from these opportunists. The Great Matobo Nature Reserve was literally on our doorstep. The Hwange National Park and The Zambezi were just a few hours up the road to the north - these areas and others became our play ground. Over the years I have had the unique privilege of meeting and experiencing the wilderness with truly remarkable bushmen, hunters, conservationists and researchers, many of them becoming good friends. The task of maintaining the wildlife areas - fencing, borehole pumps, drought relief, poaching, hunting and the challenges attached to all these activities have been a point of conversation, conservation, convention and contention for many years. Great effort, time, resources and energy have been put into these important issues by some enlightened, inspired government agencies and usually self sacrificing, dedicated people who have a passion for life. Sadly, despite these efforts, the wilderness areas of our planet continues to diminish and huge pressures, unanswered questions and failed strategies continue to loom, placing a question mark on the future of many already threatened species. The arts in general and especially the visual arts are an important communicator of these issues."
