Royal Bengal Tiger in the Afternoon Sun
At the age of 18, Hunt mounted his first one-man show in his home town of Redcar, and exhibitions at the Austin Hayes Gallery in York soon followed. Since then his paintings have been exhibited regularly in museums, galleries and collections throughout the globe. Principally known as a birds-of-prey artist until his thirties, he widened his subject matter to encompass other predators, in particular tigers, lions, leopards and cheetahs. ‘They appeal to the predator in us’, he says. ‘We look at them with a touch of envy but also great respect.’ During the 1970s and 1980s, when nature conservation was gathering momentum, he became involved in the World Wildlife Fund’s Save the Tiger campaign.
