The art of giving: Ronnie Wood

01-09-2018

The Tusk Rhino Trail is a London-wide art installation which celebrates the magnificence of the rhino and draws attention to the severe threat of poaching to their survival. Each rhino has been specially designed, decorated and embellished by internationally renowned artists, including Ronnie Wood. 

The artworks will be on display across London  until World Rhino Day on 22nd September, after which they will be auctioned by the leading London auction house Christie's on 9th October 2018 to raise funds in support of conservation projects.

Ronnie's rhino, which he has named Spike, can be visited on Carnaby Street.

“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!”
