There are Elephants in the Room … # 10
Elephant Parade is an open-air exhibition dedicated to saving the Asian elephant from extinction. For one or more months hundreds of painted elephant sculptures specially created by artists are placed in the streets of one or more host cities with the aim of increasing public awareness of the plight of the elephant and gaining support for Asian elephant conservation. They are then auctioned off, with the proceeds going to the Asian Elephant Foundation. The first Elephant Parade was held in Rotterdam in 2007. In 2010 the exhibition was held in London and one of the contributing artists was Scottish painter Jack Vettriano. He was born in 1951 and his best known work is The Singing Butler. (1992)
This painting was the basis of his particular creation for the Elephant Parade ... The Singing Butler Rides Again.
