Great Gorillas is another wonderful public art event coming from Wild in Art in partnership with Paignton Zoo for the English Riviera in South Devon.
A trail of colourful Gorillas will decorate the streets along the coast from Paignton to Exeter from 3rd August for 10 weeks.
They will then be auctioned to raise money for the zoo's Western Lowland Gorilla conservation projects.
I was lucky to have my design 'Five Minutes to Midnight' sponsored by South Devon Law firm Wollen Michelmore.
The concept for the design is the phrase 'Five Minutes to Midnight' from the symbolic Doomsday clock which heralds time running out and impending disaster...in this to highlight the urgent plight of the endangered Western Gorilla.
There will be a lovely additional feature to this event, as Babbacombe Model Village will be hosting a miniature version of the whole trail.
I was also very pleased to learn that my design has been chosen as one of the gorillas that will be available as a miniature ceramic figurine.
