Among today`s genre of wildlife artists, John Banovich is regarded as one of the best. Following in the tradition of the late 19th and early 20th century conservationist and wildlife artist Carl Rungius, Banovich was similarly raised as a sportsman and wildlife enthusiast. Like Rungius, his experiences of hunting and exploration gave him direct access to wildlife and an intimate understanding of animal anatomy which found full expression in his art
"There is an ancient mystery in the eyes of the beast.
Looking deep within, we come face to face with ourselves.
For they are the windows to our past, and the prophecy of our future."
