Animal Art- Elephants

Elephants can paint. They can paint self portraits and still life. It is amazing how these giant creatures can create such beauty. Artists, Komar and Melamid, opened an elephant art academy to teach elephants to paint after a law was put in place that left many elephants without a livelihood. An 8 year old female named Hong can paint elephants holding flowers and the Thai flag. Another elephant, a 5 year old male likes to paint squiggly lines on his canvas. learn more about the artists Komar and Melamid and about the elephant art at
