Another one from Soviet artists Vitaly Komar and Alex Melamid – this time the paintings are made by elephants.
I saw this exhibit in Berkeley- the cool part is the elephants each have a unique and recognizable style.
Plus, the painters are all “Retired” elephants, and the sale of their paintings goes to support their habitat.
The Asian Elephant Art & Conservation Project (AEACP) is a non-profit organization dedicated to saving the diminishing number of Asian elephants left on our planet through its work with domesticated elephants. The AEACP raises funds through donations and the sale of artwork created by elephants in order to fulfill its mission.
Another entertaining aside- their site is based on OSCommerce, a close relative of Zen Cart, which I have been recently battling due to its complete lack of documentation and its development team’s complete lack of social skills.

from Komar & Melamid, incredibly funny art criticism project where they polled people from different countries and made the “most wanted” oil panting for each one based on the results. The resulting paintings are truly dreadful!
