Rolling Stones star Ronnie Wood produces artwork to help save the rhinos

Robert Dex
August 17, 2018

Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood is among a group of artists brightening up London’s streets with dozens of colourful fibre-glass resin rhinos.

The guitarist, who went to art school before becoming a musician, illustrated his model with an African landscape.

Wood, whose devotion to the endangered animals has seen him adopt an African rhino called Spike, said: “My inspiration is that this beautiful prehistoric creature should be around for future generations of our children to see.

“I tried to include motifs from the African flags of the main rhino populated regions. As the rhino wanders the plains, it makes me think - it is Spike in another form.”

Other artists taking part include Gavin Turk, Marc Quinn and the Chapman Brothers.

The 21 sculptures will go on show across London on Monday (20th) at sites including Trafalgar Square, Covent Garden and Kensington Gardens.

Each one is about 750 cm high and more than a metre in length and weighs in at just over 300kg complete with a plinth and concrete weights to keep them in place.

They will be auctioned off at Christie’s on October 9 with all the money going to conservation charity Tusk which works to protect endangered animals.

Its CEO Charlie Mayhew said: “We’re at a crisis point where the threat to rhino from poaching means a very real risk of losing this near prehistoric species forever to extinction.

“Tusk is incredibly grateful to all the amazing artists, generous sponsors and partners involved in the Tusk Rhino Trail for joining forces with us to work toward a future for rhino and other threatened species across Africa.

Through the Trail we hope to inspire as many people as possible to join us in the fight.”

That's a good cause ... Would definitely be fun and interesting to see.

They did something like that in NYC a few years back... Artists painting fiberglass resin cows. I don't remember if it had a "cause" or message... other than "Art For Art's Sake"

They've done similar in Seattle with pigs and at the end of the "exhibition" auctioned them off for the cause. Raising awareness and money.
Good on Ronnie for this.

SAVE THE RHINOS!

Really like that rhino on the right by Adam Dant - filled with detail and reflective of some of his other work.
And nice one from David Mach - probably best know for his sculpture and installations.

Cheers to Ronnie for taking part.
