Immortalizing murdered elephants on canvas

By April 8, 2017Uncategorized

James Picard’s Elephant Series is currently being featured on the official Ellen Degeneres YouTube channel

My Elephant Series of drawings & paintings was inspired by an article I read about a family of elephants that were well known on an Elephant Sanctuary Reserve in Africa. They were always together and a favourite among visitors to the reserve.

One morning park officials found them all murdered…their tusks and feet removed and their bodies left to rot in the sun. I felt sick for days and had many sleepless nights at the injustice of it all, but happy I could immortalize them in drawings and on canvas.
