Wildlife SOS in partnership with PFA, India organized a unique art exhibition recently. The “One World” Art collection showcased art created by rescued sloth bears along with artists (like Gopi Gajwani, Surender, Naresh Kapuria, etc) who worked on the canvasses to create unparalleled work of art.
These extraordinary artworks were for sale and all proceeds went to Wildlife SOS to help care for the treatment and care of the rescued bears at our bear sanctuaries. The event ran from the 29th January to 1st Feb at The Art Junction, The Lalit Hotel, New Delhi.
The canvasses were initially given to the Sloth Bears along with a lot of non toxic and non lead color jars. The bears played with these paints and walked over the canvasses leaving their unique pawprints. These canvasses were then worked on by artists who incorporated the pawprints into their own theme. Every one of the paintings can be considered a masterpiece in its own right.
Kartick Satyanarayan, co-founder of Wildlife SOS, said, â€œAt Wildlife SOS, our mission is to help conserve the endangered Sloth Bear in the wild. The barbaric practice of ‘dancing bears’ is now at an end and the last few ‘dancing bears’ have been rescued recently. We plan to continue with the conservation programme in the wild and check the poaching of Sloth Bear cubs in the future.â€
There are a few paintings remaining. If you have interest in purchasing one of these unique works of art, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
