Well, strange indeed, but also true. Not all, but some
elephants have taken to the paintbrush like fish take to
water, each developing their own unique and distictive
strokes. Through years of working side by side with art
teachers – as in any art college – a few outstanding
artists have emerged at Maesa Elephant Camp with
some of their works being on display in art galleries as
far flung as New York , London and Tokyo .
They have also been sold for large sums ($400-$600) at
charity auctions around the world. Owners of these
amazing paintings include royalty & movie stars.

|Elephants painted pictures in the 1930s as part of a
circus act. The first serious art by elephants, mostly
pencil drawings, was done in the 1940s at a zoo in New
York. In 1995, two Russian conceptual artists, Komar and
Melamid, began painting with elephants in US zoos. In
1997 they came to Thailand. The elephants here proved
to be very quick learners and soon their work was
featured in the daily shows
Their paintings have been featured at many famous art
venues including an auction at Christie's and major
exhibitions at the Venice Biennale and the Sydney
Museum of Contemporary Art. Their paintings were the
centerpiece of a CBS 60 Minutes feature and featured in
many other TV shows, including Animal Planet, BBC, and
National Geographic. Many newspaper and magazine
articles have appeared all over the world.
A YouTube video of a calf named Hong painting an exquisite
side view of an elephant went viral
millions of hits. Unfortunately, this video is no longer
