Gromit Unleashed!

We all know the loveable Gromit from Aardman's Wallace and Gromit films! Now, Gromit Unleashed, the wonderful project, which will see 5ft Gromit statues taking up residence across the city of Bristol as part of a collaboration between Aardman and Bristol Children's Hospital charity Wallace and Gromit's Grand Appeal, has selected PP artist Paula Bowles from 500 artists from across the globe, to paint one of their giant Gromits! 

The statues, which have already started arriving in Bristol, will be auctioned off in the autumn for the charity's £3.5 million appeal for state-of-the-art equipment and improved facilities at the hospital.

It's a real honour to be selected and Paula's giant Gromit will be exhibited among fellow selected artists, including Raymond Briggs and Axel Schleffler, so she will be in excellent company! We are so excited to see how she paints hers. You can read more here.
