Born in 1962, in Chorley, Lancashire, Adrian Rigby is a well-known and prolific wildlife artist, but one who has been able to turn his hand successfully to other artistic themes as well.
He studied art at the Blackpool College of Art from 1979-1982 and then taught at the same college from 1982-1985. He discovered his passion for wildlife and nature at a young age and, as a conservationist, he believes strongly that all birds and animals have a personality which can be portrayed on canvas, and that their habitat should be preserved.
Adrian Rigbys art is constantly pursuing higher standards of realism and accuracy. As a result, he spends a great deal of time out in the field collecting, observing and noting changes to nature according to the varying seasons. He paints mainly with oil and gouache, and adopts a slightly different style for each of his stunning paintings, in which mood, atmosphere and light play an important part.
Adrian Rigby was awarded three prizes at the annual exhibition of The Wildlife Art Society in 1996. He won Best in Show for his painting titled, Rushing Waters, and also he won awards for Best New Member and Best Overall Presentation in Show. Adrian Rigby has held many exhibitions at leading galleries around the country.
