Wildlife Artist Marcello Pettineo


Central African Savannah Buffalo


Cameroon

I came across Marcello Pettineo's work over a year ago on a brochure from a French company that conducts hunting safaris in C.A.R., SAFARIA (SAFARIA). Having looked at thousands of hunting outfits' brochures over the years, I must say that this one clearly stood out right away from the rest, just by having Marcello's extraordinary pencil drawing on the cover. After taking some time to go through it, it is no doubt, and by far, the nicest hunting brochure that I ever seen. SAFARIA's brochure is laid out page after page of wildlife, hunting lifestyle, hunting scenes and trophy pictures showcasing Marcello's work beautifully throughout. You can see SAFARIA's brochure as an attached document to this post called "brochure-safaria.pdf".


Wildlife Artist Marcello Fremens - In The Field in C.A.R.

Marcello Pettineo was born in Sicily, Italy in 1959, he has devoted all of his energy for the past 30 years to his passion, nature, the focus of all his activities. In fact from his earliest childhood, he has spent his whole life following this pursuit, as he explains in his self-published art object book “Memoire d’un pecheur de tritons” (Memoirs of a newt fisher) which can be viewed at >oo POISCAILLE oo<.


Bongo

A fervent fishing enthusiast as a child and then a keen fly fisherman in later years, engaging in this hobby has taken him to a variety of places throughout the world. He began this travelling quite late in life immersing himself body and soul in the experience, seeking through his drawings and travels to record his impressions within projects that often take the form of nature sketchbooks. But he does not regard this as a profession; it is something else entirely, and those who use his services and artistic sensitivities to portray the natural world in various mediums, are well aware of this.


Bushbuck

He is not a hunting enthusiast, but rather an observer of nature, which is how he sees himself, first and foremost. He remains deeply convinced that it is by dialogue and understanding that a sustainable harmony between nature and mankind can be forged.

Some of Marcello Pettineo's works can be seen and purchased at www.orchape.com or by contacting him directly by e-mail at marcello@fremens.com.

I hope that you will enjoy his field sketches as much as I do!

Hello Milan, I just watched your video on disassembling/reassembling the CZ 550. I have spent days looking for something like this. I now have no reservations taking apart my rifle. I like to do this with all my guns so I understand them "inside and out". Thank you very much for the information. It is greatly appreciated.
