Titans
by Guy Combes

“These two paintings aren't intended to be a diptych in the sense that there is a continuum or inter-action between them,” says wildlife artist Guy Combes. “More so, I wanted to convey the essence of these formidable foes of the plains separately but 'mirroring' each other, too. The monolithic cold dark colors of the buffalo contrast with the warm energy of the lion's head and mane. There's something about the power and carriage of each animal that suggests similarities between them.”

Guy Combes was most recently featured at the Society of Animal Artists exhibition and sale in San Diego, California where his painting Leopard Lounge was a show favorite. He is also actively involved in efforts to prevent the Tanzanian government from building a road across the northern migration routes of the Serengeti National Park.

Tango
by Guy Combes

“This painting is about the promise of a partnership I believe in,” says Guy Combes. “The ranch my family is associated with in Kenya’s Great Rift Valley, Soysambu, has become a nature conservancy. Wild cheetahs have not been seen at Soysambu for over 6 years, but a long-term feasibility study by the Cheetah Conservation Fund (CCF) has been undertaken to assess the possibility of trans-locating them here from areas where their survival is threatened. Part of that plan is to set up a sanctuary on the Soysambu Conservancy with the help of Action for Cheetahs in Kenya and Project Survival's Cat Haven in California.

As you can see, Soysambu is an ideal location for the cheetah. Project Survival had commissioned me to paint their cheetah, Tango, who came from South Africa and was raised at their fabulous Cat Haven facility outside Fresno, California. I suggested that in the spirit of the project, he be the first 'trans-location' to Soysambu. In the background is one of Soysambu’s most recognizable landmarks—a small volcano named 'The Sleeping Warrior.’”
