Elmer in Northern Ireland

The Details

Name: Elmer in Northern Ireland

Location: City Quay 2

Created by: Julie Lowry

Sponsor: NI Hospice

Design Inspiration

When I was creating my design I wanted to retrain Elmer’s colourful patches. The bright rainbow colours not only symbolise Elmer the Elephant but the rainbow of hope for our country and people during these difficult times. Each patch is my aesthetic representation of a famous place, landmark or aspect of nature associated with Northern Ireland. A great discussion point for all viewers.
