Carl Chaplin

Carl Chaplin has been painting wildlife for the last sixty years. Although his training was in science, he pursued his love of art. In 1970 he moved to BC to be closer to the wilderness and further from civilization. Over the years Carl’s images have been donated to many worthwhile causes and millions of reproductions have been distributed worldwide.

Although his technique is modern, he is a super-traditionalist using the ancient principles of the Golden Ratio (Phi). He developed a unique method within Phi called “Reiteration.” Rather than a sketch, a very small painting is created. That first iteration is enlarged and completely repainted, adding more detail. The process is repeated and results in a series of paintings. His most recent development has been to paint in stereoscopic 3D. Having toured around the world many years ago, Carl is now a non-flying, non-driving, stay-at-home-and-paint-all-day kind of guy.
