To raise awareness about poaching and dwindling wildlife population, the Night Safari has launched an Art Seen & Herd! exhibition showcasing four artworks from four Singapore street artists, each inspired by an endangered animal.
The four artists commissioned for the campaign are ClogTwo (Eman Jeman), The Killer Gerbil (Luthfi Mustafah), Mindflyer (Michael Ng) and SKL0 (Samantha Lo). Each was assigned an animal to feature in their artwork, they are the Indian rhino, Asian elephant, Asiatic black bear, and the Malayan tiger, respectively.
Animals featured in the exhibition are often hunted and farmed for the purpose of traditional medicine despite the availability of synthetic substitutes. There is also no evidence of the efficacy of these treatments.
Visit Art Seen & Herd! from now till 1 June 2013 at Night Safari’s entrance plaza. To make your journey’s worth, Night Safari is offering a 50% discount on admission after 9pm from 1 June to 31 August 2013.
