Michael Ghaui (b.1950) Tanzanian
Standing Buffalo
Signed, and dated (20)08, oil on canvas, 100.5cm 150.5cm

Born in 1950, and brought up on a farm in Tanzania, Michael Ghaui has an intimate knowledge of the wildlife and landscape of Africa. Growing up he regularly made camping trips to game parks with his family, a tradition which he continues. These observational trips in the wilds of Tanzania provide key field notes and inspiration for his paintings and sculptures. His impressionistic and realistic approach brings an authentic experience of wildlife in the African bush. When not in Tanzania, he resides on the shores of Lake Naivasha in Kenya. Ghaui has had exhibitions in Nairobi, Kenya and the United States, and his works hang in numerous private collections throughout the world.
