Ipswich-born artist Kieran Page’s portraits of 22 near-threatened to critically endangered speices will be on display every weekend at the Mill Tye Gallery in Great Cornard.

Among the animals he has painted include the Asian Elephant and the Ethiopian Wolf.

Mr Page said 10% of sales for each print will go to the World Wide Fund for Nature(WWF).

He added: “As the Mill Tye Gallery has been really supportive of my work, I’ve made this series exclusive to them. They are displaying the original artwork, 10 portraits in A6 and 12 in A5 which are for sale.

“I really hope people will enjoy the illustrations, and that their reflections will also strengthen the resolve to support wildlife habitats and species at risk of extinction.”

Gallery owner Peter Rumsey said Mr Page is an “uprising star” who has “impacted massively” on the Suffolk art scene.

“It is great to be showcasing Kieran’s work again” Mr Rumsey said. “The exhibition we hosted last year was a huge success – and that comes as no surprise.

“Kieran is an uprising star in Suffolk and has impacted immensely on its art scene.”

Kieran’s prints are available for sale here.
