The Artist – Donna Newman
This Elmer has been designed by freelance artist Donna Newman. Specialising in large-scale painting and mural art, Donna works with schools across the area to inspire children and young people and transform learning environments through creativity.
She created this Elmer, whose colours were inspired by the iconic pink, yellow and blue Elephant statue, which oversees Newington Butts, after working with a group of students from the London College of Communication.
The hand-painted sculpture is embellished with multicultural patterns to represent the diverse community of Elephant and Castle.
