"Creativity for Conservation"

October/November 2019

by Michele Corriel
A retrospective at the Nevada Museum of Art places John Banovich’s artwork in historical context.

John Banovich’s conservationist ideals, as fierce as the lions he portrays, roar with authenticity. His large paintings express a poignant love for places losing their hold on wilderness, and in turn, they bring to light the delicate balance of the natural world in danger of extinction. Because of this ideology, the Banovich Wildscapes Foundation funds endeavors in Africa to protect endangered areas.
