Artists and art lovers

Meet the creatives whose dazzling designs adorn the elephants of The Big Trunk Trail.

What an amazing spectacle it is to see over 30 beautifully designed giant elephants trumpeting along the free, fun and family-friendly art trail around Luton’s key landmarks, streets and open spaces, bringing together the community for one unforgettable jumbo event this summer.

Every sculpture on The Big Trunk Trail is decorated with its own piece of unique artwork – showcasing the wealth of artistic talent on offer in Luton and beyond. Find out more about each of the artists below.
