  • Neil W. Cox (born 1955) is a British wildlife artist. Born in Watford, Cox was always interested in conservation and the environment and drew and painted wildlife from an early age. Whilst reading Law at Southampton University he developed his skills during frequent trips to the New Forest. Having graduated, early interest from galleries and private collectors prompted a decision to return to his first love and pursue a career as a wildlife artist. Galleries soon showed interest in his work and he has since had exhibitions in Europe and the UK. In Europe, he has shown at the Gallery Florimont in Lausanne, Switzerland and for several years with Moll Brinks Konst in Uppsala, Sweden. His work has a growing following in the USA. The Bennett Galleries, Tennessee and Holland + Holland, California, amongst others, have exhibited his works. Both Sotheby's and Christie's have successfully auctioned his work, and Phillips have auctioned his work in aid of the Rhino Rescue Trust. His work has sold at the SWLA's annual show at the Mall in London and he has been a finalist in the European Bird Artist of the Year competition. Cox travels extensively, constantly seeking new ideas. His move from the Cotswolds to the West Country, where he now lives close to the sea in an area of outstanding natural beauty, has enabled him to gain fresh inspiration from the landscape and great diversity of wildlife in this stunning part of the country. His individual technique and approach to painting means his work is highly sought after by those who know and love the natural world or simply appreciate good art.Since 2009 he has been a member of the Kennaway Fine Art Guild in Sidmouth, Devon. In October 2009, Cox, together with the three other artists, exhibited his work at the inaugural exhibition of the Kennaway Fine Art Guild with great success. (en)
