About the Artist

Lute Vink was born in Den Helder the Netherlands in 1961. Lute immigrated to South Africa with his parents at the age of 2. Lute`s father, who was also artistic, passed away shortly after their arrival in South Africa. He never had the opportunity to make art his career.
As far back as he can remember, Lute was always busying himself with sketching and other forms of art. It was inevitable that he would become an artist. In 1989 he had established a viable market for his wildlife art and his full time professional art career became a reality.
After years of successful exhibitions and growing sales at home and abroad his work soon reached investment status.
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.
Lute`s work is well accepted everywhere. His paintings hang in collections worldwide and he has been credited and published in numerous magazines and publications throughout the world.

His dream to leave the busy city life behind him became a reality when he moved to the Bushveld with his family in 2002.
