An ‘egg’hibition to remember

Local artist and Creative Leicestershire member Loz Atkinson has been selected to take part in 'The Big Egg Hunt'.

Presented by Faberge, organized by Elephant Family and supporting Action For Children, it will see London transformed and even try to set a world record in the process. Each corner will hold a secret treasure for the public to discover and experience, hatching wonders and excitement as they journey through the streets of London for a cracking good time.

Loz, has designed and painted one of 200 fibreglass eggs. Each standing 2 1/2 foot tall they will take pride of place on the streets of London from Shrove Tuesday, 21st February, continuing on for 40 days and 40 nights. London will be transfixed by the most astounding and exhilarating egg hunt it has ever seen. Former Bursary winner and Artist Taking the Lead commissioned artist, Shauna Richardson has also designed an egg for the event.

Loz has had works featured in two previous Elephant family events. In 2010’s Elephant Parade London her elephant ‘deliverance’ featured on the Southbank and fetched £10,000 at auction. Whilst in the summer of 2011 her Hornbill creation was one of 150 creatures that turned Edinburgh into Jungle City, with Loz’s artwork appearing on the front cover of the exhibitions accompanying book and raised over £2,000 at auction.
Her egg titled "from little acorns, mighty oaks do grow", which will feature on Liverpool Street in the City, symbolises the fantastic work done by both Elephant Family and Action For Children charities.
