Silvia Duran

by on September 26, 2013

Silvia Duran was born in Calafell, Tarragona, Spain. Wild-life painter.


Spanish born Silvia Duran, studied art with her father and in Bellas Artes de Barcelona, In England, an A level in Art and a City and Guilds Certificate. Her life and work changed forever the day she saw the film ‘Born Free’. She knew then that she wanted to paint the Big Cats and she specialized in these magnificent felines. She was allowed into the Wildlife Parks to sketch and study the animals at close quarters. Many Exhibitions followed, in London, throughout England and New York. Silvia travelled to Africa to see Lions in their natural habitat. She was invited by the legendary George Adamson to stay at his ‘Kampi Ya Simba’ at Kora.  She produced paintings for the WWF, Born Free Foundation, Kora Trust Wildlife Foundation to help the animals. Invited by His Excellency Sheik Khalifa Bin Sulman  Alkhalifa, Prime Minister of Bahrain to have an Exhibition, her style of work changed. The beautiful island of Bahrain, with its stunningly bright light, intense vibrant colors, flowers, palaces, desert sand and turquoise seas, opened a whole new world for Silvia. Silvia´s home near the sea, is graced by the presence of her large family of cats, which are an endless source of inspiration and pleasure.
