For those of you that have been following my painted elephant sculptures for Mali in the City, I’ve finally pulled together a time-lapse video of the painting process of my first elephant, Elephantasy. I’m booked in to paint my second elephant “Here today...” on the 25th of June.
If you’re still wondering what I am on about, check out the other posts on my blog:
I had a lot of fun painting this and being on site at the Zoo was awesome. I spent most of my lunch breaks watching Mali and her family and I had to cut out plenty of frames from the time-lapse where I stopped painting to watch little wrens bob about and a group of about 8 peahens foraging outside my window. I shared the space with another artist, called Sharon, who was good company and was working on a very detailed jungle seen on her Mali which I now can’t wait to see finished! There were a few completed Mali’s about, including the works of Graeme Base, Mirka Moora and David Bromley.
The likeness of Mali was sculpted by the creative director of Wild in Art, Chris Wilkinson.
