About the Artist

Denman stands out for his distinctive style and mastery of his painterly skill. Denman primarily paints wildlife and animal subjects in a unique, hallmark style combining realism, stylisation and abstraction. His dynamic and original paintings can be found in museum collections and in numerous private international collections. His clear voice, unique vision, and commitment to contract artistic experimentation has positioned him to the forefront of an artistic vanguard of the best contemporary wildlife and animal painters working today. 

Denman holds a BA in Fine Arts from Saint Mary’s College in Moraga, CA. He is well known in the San Francisco Bay Area as both an artist and teacher, and he has gained international attention through major galleries and numerous museums exhibitions. While accuracy is of great importance to Denman he is also a naturalist. The sense of fearless experimentation and originality he brings to his paintings testifies to the artist’s true focus.

“Whether painting an animal in its natural habitat or juxtaposing it against an abstract background, I take great lengths to faithfully portray my subjects, taking frequent field trips to nature areas, parks and zoos to observe my subjects and acquire reference material”.
