Picture of Lute Vink

Born in Den Helder, the Netherlands, Lute immigrated to South Africa with his parents at the age of two. At a very early stage in his life he lost his father, also an artistic man but he unfortunately passed away before he could make art his career.

As far back as he can remember, he was always busy sketching and began his full time professional art career in 1989. His dream to leave the busy city life behind him became a reality when he moved to the Bushveld with his family in 2002. Lute derives great pleasure out of wildlife and nature and respects every aspect thereof. His favourite pastime is visiting game parks, where he not only gets his reference material from but also finds his inspiration.

BBC Wildlife Artist of the Year 2013 finalist, Lute continues to receive international recognition for his incredible talent. His paintings hang in collections worldwide and he has been credited and published in numerous magazines and publications.

Although best known for his wildlife paintings Lute also does works of fine art, which include still lives, figures and farm scenes. This diversity is what attracted the attention of publishers Books Illustrated, who commissioned him to illustrate ‘The Jungle Book’, scheduled for publication in April 2015.

“How would I want to be remembered: as an artist that stood in awe by the natural beauty of our planet Earth, that respected every tiny detail thereof and absorbed, learnt and tried to understand nature. I want to leave knowing that my paintings are an on-going remembrance of my love for nature and that it will inspire others to appreciate and love our planet.”
