About the Artist:
Boorujy’s love of animals led him to the University of Miami, where he intended to study marine biology but switched his major to art early on. His undergraduate education was only the beginning of his formal study, and it offered him a solid foundation in a diversity of styles and subject matter. Boorujy uses brushes, ink, and his biological background to show his interest in the natural world. The animals he paints are done with painstakingly accurate detail on stark white backgrounds. He aims for viewers to be forced to truly look at familiar animals in an unfamiliar way.
 
The 29th Annual Western Visions Show & Sale is carefully curated and includes both traditional and contemporary sketches, paintings, and sculpture. Western Visions is the cornerstone of Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival, and includes several fun and social events that allow collectors and artists to interact.
