Elephant Art

Meet Karishma, a 13-year old female Asian elephant and Whipsnade Zoo's resident artist. She enjoys taking time off from looking after her 17-month-old baby George and showing how delicately she can use her trunk to wield a paintbrush. Her paintings will be on display at the zoo's Elephant Appreciation Weekend, 24 and 25 September, fundraising for the Zoological Society of London's worldwide elephant conservation projects (title link).

As an abstract painter for over 40 years...I loath trained animals and toddlers who's slaps and dashes are touted as art by those not in a position to judge.....tsk

The trouble with abstract painting is that animals can do it too. Before you complain, take a look at Trotters Independent Painters:
