Gromit Unleashed Hong Kong
Following on from the enormous success of Gromit Unleashed, The Grand Appeal and Aardman Animations teamed up with ELEMENTS mall in Hong Kong to showcase ‘The Greatest Dog Show on Earth' bringing together 70 new sculptures in a first for outside the UK. Each Gromit was individually designed and decorated by an array of top designers, celebrities and international brands.
The sculptures were transformed by an array of artists, illustrators, fashion designers and musicians, including Nick Park, creator of Wallace & Gromit, Merlin Crossingham, Creative Director of Wallace & Gromit and fellow Aardman designers Gavin Strange and Richard Webber; along with world-renowned milliner Philip Treacy, whose hats are worn by members of the Royal family and famous Hong Kong celebrities.
At the end of the exhibition, the giant sculptures were auctioned to raise funds for Wallace & Gromit's Grand Appeal, the Bristol Children’s Hospital Charity, and children's art programmes in hospitals across Hong Kong.
