LOST was created for Micah Purnells art project Print Up Paste Up
I've created graphical animal portraits APE & BIG CAT, without considering issues such as their numbers in the wild. This was until someone in an office I was working recently, declared that the Western Black Rhino was now officially extinct. Nobody around at the time so much as blinked an eye, let alone comment on this. So this piece is a response to both that sad news, and how no one regarded this as major event.
The further you're away from the print, the clearer the image of the rhino is.
The closer you get the less obvious it is, until it is lost.
It can be seen on Oldham Road coming into Manchester for a couple of weeks..
