About the Author

Mark Adlington is a London based artist who travels extensively in search of the wildlife which has been his principal obsession since early childhood. He works extensively on site before returning to the studio to try and recreate the immediacy of his responses to the animals using various and often mixed media. Mark exhibits regularly in London and abroad, and occasionally works to commission. He is represented by the John Martin of London Gallery in Mayfair, and by the Bridgeman Art Library.


'This is a beautiful book which goes a long way to portraying the polar bear in all its dimensions'. - Gordon Buchanan (wildlife film-maker and presenter); 'The images that form the book Painting The Ice Bear are magnificent. Some are just a few sketchy lines and some fully developed paintings but all are evocative of the creature, its moods, power and vulnerabilities. I was astounded how a relatively constrained palette managed to underpin the qualities of the polar bear so successfully. I especially liked those images representing the bear in water as they are so balletic and fluid...Painting The Ice Bear would make a perfect present for any animal lover, anyone interested in natural history and any artist... I think Painting The Ice Bear is a glorious, sumptuous, celebratory book that I am delighted to own.' - Linda's Book Bag blog
