Oregon Art Beat

Rama, The Painting Elephant


Oregon Art Beat features its first non-human artist: Rama, an Oregon Zoo elephant, paints! Overshadowed for years by his famous father, Packy, Rama is finally coming into his own as an emerging Oregon artist. Rama uses his trunk to wield a paintbrush. He also blows paint directly from his trunk to make abstract patterns, with a little help from his handler.

First Broadcast: 2004
Producer: Jessica Martin
