While having an Easter lunch with my family today, my brother shared some photos of the Bangkok Elephant Campaign which he initiated & conceived to bring attention to the treatment of the elephants in Bangkok. The messages in the murals were written by Jasun Vare (my brother), with each concept developed with Jasun's creative partner Scott Hitchcock, who is also a street artist.
Various artists from around the world (Japan, Australia, Sweden, Thailand, Malaysia, England) came on board producing what I think is an amazing set of artworks; which communicate a poignant message.
The campaign has been supported by WSPA (World Society for Protection of Animals) along with the elephant nature park and rescue foundation.
My kudos to all of those involved!!
