The collection exhibited at the “Together For Our Planet” COP26 British High Commission to Malaysia dinner and event were created by artist Rachel Gray. On display are a diverse selection of her wildlife portraits. This collection also includes pieces from her latest collection “BELOW THE CANOPY”, being shown in the Malaysia pavilion at EXPO 2020 DUBAI (2021 - 2022).

 

Her collection, in collaboration with the British High Commission, includes many endangered and critically endangered animals, with a strong focus on Malaysian Wildlife. From the majestic Malayan Tiger to the mesmerising Orangutang, her works aim to raise awareness of the incredible creatures we share this planet with. 

 

Rachel’s work strives to bring animals to the forefront, they aspire to give the viewer a moment, shared with each animal, via digital art. Rachel has traveled extensively to experience these magical moments with the animals she paints, hoping to capture some aspect of these majestic creatures on canvas. She only uses her own wildlife photography as a reference and her works can take anywhere from 80 to 250 hours to paint.

The Ambassador of Namibia and I are collaborating to create a collection that promotes Namibia as a tourist destination. As well as to raise awareness of the absolutely stunning but rare and endangered wildlife of Namibia. I had the experience of a lifetime whilst I toured Namibia taking my wildlife photography to paint from - check out my Instagram for so much more photo's and video's.

A joy to be exhibiting for a two year long exhibition with the Four Seasons Hotel Kuala Lumpur, showcasing my wildlife portraits and abstract paintings.

 

In addition, co-managing the Emerging Artist Gallery has been an absolute pleasure. Giving Artist's the opportunity and platform to grow is most inspiring.

It’s as real achievement for Rachel Gray to be the first British female solo artist to exhibit in Malaysia’s National Visual Arts Gallery, particularly in this special year as the gallery marks its 60th anniversary. The historic Malaysian-British relationship is one of modern partnership and mutual respect. Exhibitions like these demonstrate how we can enrich both of our cultures in the spirit of collaboration. I hope that the artistic exchange embodied in today’s exhibition is something that will continue to flourish in both Malaysia and the UK

"Captivating many were the incredibly realistic digital paintings by Rachel Gray, a Briton who has travelled extensively across Southeast Asia to photograph wildlife.

 

The imagery she captured inspires her animal portraits. Displayed at the show were pieces depicting a panda, lion, zebra and a pair of giraffes.
