About the artwork

More than a musician, Arno Elias is the founder and photographer of the “I’m not a Trophy” project, an organisation dedicated to drawing greater attention to the extinction of endangered species. By means of a visually attractive campaign, starring top model Cara Delevigne as ambassadress, the organisation’s aim is to educate future generations and unite them in this cause. The Earth has in fact lost half of its populations of wild species in less than two generations. Lion populations have gone from 450,000 in 1940 to less than 20,000 in 2010. Lion are slaughtered for sport, each year, 5.600 lions are killed to become hunting trophy. This led to the species extinction in 26 countries.  Only about 1 in 8 male lions survive to adulthood. Simba is part of the The Lost Series project, a crystallisation of different techniques inspired by the pop-art movement and artists such as Robert Rauschenberg, Jasper Johns, Gerard Richter, Jackson Pollock and Jean-Michel Basquiat. With fine details and rich tones, this hand-painted photography brings a certain sense of nostalgia to the onlooker.
