ARTIST BIOGRAPHY

Fabrizio Caforio, or "Fuz" as he prefers to be called, was born from Italian parentage in Johannesburg, South Africa.

From his home in Africa, close to the creatures of nature that grace his art, he can trace his creative roots to Florence, Italy, where his Great Grandfather was a sculptor. Recognizing his artistic gift from a young age, Fuz has been painting for more than half of his life. Fuz has devoted the last nine years of his career to the study of large cats, refining technique and style to capture these magnificent felines on canvas.

The exquisite detail and life-like quality of his art comes from painstaking research. Much time is spent in the wild bush and at breeding research stations collecting the necessary reference before he goes into the studio to paint. Fuz Caforio's style can be described as painterly realism, the medium being acrylic on canvas, and the studies done in true life size. He has refined his skill and technique over the years to a point where fur patterns and textures are vividly and authentically reproduced.

Through his work, Fuz has helped to raise funds for many non-governmental conservation organizations.

These include:

  • The WWF
  • The Endangered Wildlife Trust
  • The Honorary Rangers of South Africa
  • Birdlife South Africa
  • DeWildt Cheetah Research
  • The Endangered Species Protection Unit
  • the Born Free Foundation and the Nedbank Green Trust
