Elephant

 

This sits in the back yard of the Art House, a centre for art education in Sheffield. It commemorates the Herd of Sheffield charity event of 2016, during which 58 elephant sculptures were decorated by artists, placed in different areas around Sheffield (you may have seen my pictures of a couple in the Botanical Gardens) and subsequently auctioned - see the Wikipedia article.

 

This marks the start of a series on street art in Sheffield.

Tom Wilson: I had pictures of a couple of the elephants last year - I was amazed at the prices they brought at auction!

We've had all sorts of similar things in Bath over the years Tom..
Tom Wilson: I imagine that charities pass the word around about what works.
It's very good isn't it.
I love the paint job on this elephant. This type of exhibit is becoming more popular. I bought a lawn chair painted by a local artist yeats ago.
This is really good Tom, I do like street art, I look forward to your series.
