In collaboration with Fred Rigby, our elephant emulated and exemplified the texture of an Asian Elephant but with extortion to the wrinkly skin.
He was named Pik Bingko, which means ‘bingo wings’ in Thai. The excess skin around Pik Bingko’s eyes exerted a slightly grumpy looking elephant with real character. Perhaps ironically, he was sponsored by Jimi Steele to become part of the happy cloud cluster in Green Park.
“Summer 2010 saw a herd of 260 brightly painted elephants pushed their way into London life when they took up residence in neighbourhoods and landmarks over the capital. Tourists and city dwellers become gripped by elephant fever which swept across London’s schools and business community.” Elaphant Parade
