BIOGRAPHY – ALLEN HALLETT b. 1948 – South African
Renowned Wildlife Artist, Safari Guide &
Allen grew up in the highlands of Kenya which were at that time teeming with Elephant, Giraffe, Buffalo and all the other plains game. His school holidays and any spare time were spent either hunting or fishing in the surrounding areas and it was at this time that a deep interest of Africa’s Wildlife was nurtured.
On leaving school he moved to South Africa and joined the Natal Parks Board and went on to become a senior game ranger in the wildlife reserves of Zululand and had the opportunity to study Africa’s wildlife first hand. During his years in the African bush he had numerous encounters with dangerous game. It was while on a photographic safari in the Okavango Delta that Allen and his party’s boat was overturned by a “rogue” Hippo. They were very lucky not to have been seriously injured and have lived to be able to recount the story of their close shave with death!!
Allen has also undertaken several commissions throughout Southern Africa and many of his edition pieces are in private collections throughout the world.
Allen’s reputation as an wildlife artist is rapidly growing internationally, with successful sales at Christie’s of London.
He now lives and has his studio in the magnificent Kwazulu Natal Midlands, at the foothills of the Drakensberg Mountain range.
