Profile of Barry Ingham

Barry started Painting wildlife while traveling in the early 1970,s and he successfully combined his love of mountaineering, bushwalking and diving with his artistic career, painting wild places and wildlife.
He has worked in many areas over the years, tracking Humpback Whales, sea lions and watching sharks along the coastline and following other wildlife in their natural habitat.

He was elected President of the Queensland Wildlife Artists Society in 1990 and then established the first selling exhibition to be held at the Queensland Museum. That was a landmark in his term of being President of the Society. He has been the subject of many articles in magazines,T.V. programs i.e. Totally Wild, and newspapers including Wildlife Australia, Australian Artist and numerous dive magazines and National Papers.
He has had a number of exhibitions in Brisbane and has exhibited in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Fremantle, Cairns,Hervey Bay and Maryborough,commissioned work from England,Switzerland,China, and the U.S. He has raised funds for a large number of Australian Conservation groups, the Cancer Foundation and Children's organizations here in Australia.

Inghams style has developed from the representational in his early days to photorealism and then later to abstract, but mainly concentrating on photorealism as his main style of work.





Barry is very meticulous. Everything he does is with great detail and infinite ease. He begins a painting, not only with a sketchpad, but also with a book, studying the life, the habitats and the unique qualities of his subject. When he finally does pick up the brush, his approach is the same. Breathing life into our wild life, and the landscape. Barry's reward is to see an eagle soar from his canvas.

His fine detail has awarded him an entry into many national wildlife art exhibitions. It has also won him public appreciation over the years. Barry has produced over thirty limited edition prints, a number of which have sold out, and also created a publishing company, known as Wilderness Design Pty Ltd. As only some people can enjoy a Barry Ingham original in their lounge room, the release of his limited edition prints has made his artwork affordable to every one.

Barry's eye for detail does not finish with the painting. Production is an arduous and hands-on process to ensure that the final print is the closest possible recreation of the original work. Only best archival acid free paper or good quality canvas and light fast inks are used to produce a print of the highest international quality.


"If in some way I can increase people's awareness and appreciation of our unique country it is an added bonus to the visual pleasure and potential investment that the paintings bring to the buyer"
