UK: Norwich: It started with elephants, now we have gorillas, or Gogogorillas! as they are called.

For the next eleven weeks the Gorilla sculptures will proudly showcase the creativity of Norwich, it heritage, architecture, regeneration and its prolific art scene, as well as highlighting environmental issues and the plight of one of the world's most endangered species.

Here we have Freddie 'Radio GoGo' Gorilla, Boris, Whoop! Whoop! and Guy.

Excellent! I did think about trying to get round and photograph them all, but there might be just a few too many for that.

Using animal forms for art work has become a standard for public art these days. I remember the first time I saw this phenomenon when I was working in Chicago in the late 90's and they did the cows. I saw some very clever entries.

Interesantes figuras, muy decoradas. Me recuerda a "copito de nieve",era todo blanco (albino) estaba en el zoo de Barcelona y se le queria mucho.

Si que recuerdo los castillos de arena de cubos ......., que tiempos.-

I remember the elephants..it's a fun colourful way to bring notice to a serious situation. You did well to capture so many Gringo.

I love Gogogorillas! Every gorilla has its own personality. I studied very carefully their faces. Some are silly, some are thoughtful and some are funny!

Great pictures, Gringo.

I do not know where this concept started, but it has certainly brightened city streets around the world! Love the colors.
