The artwork of Charles Lynn "Chick" Bragg vibrates with intense color
and soulful animal energy. A passionate environmentalist, Bragg has
dedicated his life to depicting and conserving the Earth's ecosystems.
His work examines the health of our planet and all of its creatures
through highly detailed—and often playful—paintings (for instance, a
golf course becomes a playground for a multitude of species!). Bragg has
been commissioned by organizations such as the World Wildlife Fund and
the Nature Conservancy. Here are 12 of his lush paintings.
