London's calling:
Teaming up with Prince William to protect wildlife.

RHINO MAN the movie

Two and a half year ago Marcel was asked to create the movie poster for the documentary RHINO MAN, a feature-length documentary about the courageous field rangers who risk their lives every day to protect South Africa's rhinos from being poached to extinction.

Marcel van Luit created an art piece of ranger and hero Anton Mzimba, who tragically lost his live during the filming of the movie. On the evening of July 26th 2022, Anton was brutally murdered at his home in front of his family.

Due to the tragic death of Anton, there has been significant attention surrounding the documentary. The foundation of Prince William and Kate Middleton, United for Wildlife, is now actively collaborating to bring the documentary to the public eye. 

Marcel van Luit, the artist behind the documentary's film poster, has been deeply moved by the powerful story it tells and the heart-wrenching fate of Anton.
Thankfully, Anton had the opportunity to behold the artwork with his own eyes. 

During the screening, organized by Global Conservation Corps and United for Wildlife, Prince William graced the event with his presence.
It is an honor to meet him and collaborate with him to raise awareness about this crucial documentary. 

Together, we are determined to do everything in our power to sustain the vital efforts of the rangers in South Africa and, hopefully, protect the rhino from extinction.  The documentary is profoundly impactful, shocking, and beautiful, deserving to be seen by as many people as possible. We believe it holds the potential to inspire action and drive positive change for the conservation of these magnificent creatures.    

In addition to attending the documentary screening, Marcel also participated in a panel discussion held at the OWO Residence.
It was a remarkable evening where Marcel van Luit passionately shared his drive to use his art as a means to raise awareness about the crucial need to protect nature and wildlife species. Through his work, he consistently showcases the beauty of nature and emphasizes the significance of animals, hoping to inspire people to take better care of the environment and its precious inhabitants.  Marcel's dedication to this cause was evident as he spoke eloquently about his mission to make a positive impact on society. His belief in the power of art to evoke change and instill a sense of responsibility towards the natural world left a lasting impression on the audience. 

Marcel van Luit created a special art piece that was auctioned at the event. The entire proceeds from the auction will be dedicated to supporting the Global Conservation Corps and their essential conservation efforts in South Africa.

The auction event was a momentous occasion, drawing art enthusiasts and conservationists alike who were eager to contribute to the meaningful cause. It was a truly special event that reaffirmed the importance of collective action in safeguarding our planet for generations to come.
