Pink Elephant


I saw a real life Pink Elephant today. No Joke. Enigmatic British artist Banksy's elaborately installed a painted elephant — a real one — in a living room scene in a warehouse southeast of downtown L.A. on Saturday, September 16, 2006. Banksy is known for graffiti-sprinkled work, acts of mischief and never appearing at his own exhibits or granting interviews. Celebrities including Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were spotted during the three-day show. Although the elephant was obviously the main draw, other pieces grabbed attention almost equally in the "warehouse full of mindless vandalism and pretty pictures."
