On canvases up to nine feet tall, Thierry Bisch makes a dramatic statement about endangered and exploited species. In partnership with the Delete? project, Bisch portrays the imminent threat to the Amur leopard, the Panamanian golden frog, the giant panda, and more. His powerful works capture the inherent grace and presence of his subjects, which are often painted with fadeaway limbs that suggest the possibility of extinction.Bisch (French, b. 1953) has long specialized in art with a message. Until the 2000s, when the artist turned his focus to animals, successive series of paintings depicted people—children who bear the burdens of their social history, posh men and women half dressed to expose their human commonalities.Bisch studied art in Strasbourg and Toulouse and went on to help create and develop Zoulou, a magazine for art designers. His work has been exhibited from Paris to Singapore.All of Pomegranates calendars are printed with soy-based inks on FSC® certified paper, which means the paper has been certified by the Forest Stewardship Council™ and manufactured by an FSC certified printer.
