The Details

Name: Artiphant

Location: Back Hamlet

Sponsor: Wild in Art

Artist: Chris Morgan

Design Inspiration

Artiphant is inspired by the work of Chris’ late wife, Valerie Osment, and the amazing Wild in Art trail sculptures she lovingly painted between 2013 and 2017. The top of the sculpture has the familiar coloured patchwork of Elmer, which then fade away to painted pictures of the 13 sculptures that Valerie painted for nine trails over those four years, including the popular Hedgepig, for the fabulous 2016 Ipswich Pigs Gone Wild trail. The rest of Elmer is painted with the tools of an artist’s trade including pens, pencils, mosaic tiles, scissors, glue and a camera.
