2017 La Fiesta de los Vaqueros Limited Edition Poster
Rob MacIntosh was born in South Africa and launched his art career there in 1980 after a fifteen-year stint as a commercial artist. MacIntosh focused on seascapes and urban landscapes before trips to the African bush developed his passion for painting African wildlife.
In 1984, at age of 35, MacIntosh made his first trip to the United States to learn from and associate with great American artists such as Harley Brown and Bob Kuhn. He moved to the U.S. in 1988 and climbed the ladder of success in the wildlife art market – he won his first Merit Award at the Society of Animal Artists in 1989.
MacIntosh returned to South Africa in 2003 to complete commissioned art for a prominent family in the Cape. He then realized he need not be trapped in a box as a wildlife artist but could pursue a broad spectrum of subjects. Today he is widely recognized as a photo realist in the art world.
MacIntosh's strict attention to the anatomical perfection of animals and his talent for capturing the slightest detail led to his invitation to become Tucson Rodeo’s featured artist. Though he had not yet ventured into the world of rodeo, he enthusiastically accepted the challenge. MacIntosh and his wife Rosica now call Tucson home.
