Three weeks, over 1,500 artists, and more than 400,000 votes were cast in the fourth installment of ArtPrize. Top honors, and 200,000$ in prize money, went to Elephants by Adonna Khare. The 30-foot wide carbon pencil on paper drawing is an entire menagerie of animals, prominently featuring elephants in a natural, and at the same time fantastical, setting.
Adonna has been drawing since she was three. Her drawings are not pre-planned rather they evolve and the result is a group of drawings where the animals coexist in a world beyond ours, and are inexplicably tied together, often not by choice.
