The French artist Julien Durix is committed to the animals of the Association «Tonga» and the Saint-Martin-la-Plaine Zoological Park
The public will be able to come and discover the unpublished work of Julien Durix in the heart of the Parc Zoologique de Saint-Martin-la Plaine.
The work, composed of more than 1,500 roses, will be exhibited to the public
throughout the summer.
Very sensitive to the actions undertaken by the Association "Tonga Terre d accueil » and touched by the benevolence of the park employees, French artist Julien Durix offered to help them.
The health crisis having jeopardized years of animal protection, his friend and digital advisor Idrys Yahiaoui, living near the refuge, alerted him to the situation.
Indeed, the park spends around 150,000 euros in monthly costs, just to feed the animals.
Julien therefore chose to create a totally unique work, representing Gincko, one of the emblematic animals of the site.
The unpublished work of 220 x 160 cm, handmade on silk roses, will be exceptionally presented to the public from Wednesday July 14, 2021 in the Zoological Park of Saint-Martin-la-Plaine
This unique piece will be offered at an auction organized with the support of Galeries Bartoux and Maison Tajan.
The funds raised by this sale will be entirely donated to the benefit of the Association « Tonga terre d accueil ».
It is with pleasure that Julien Durix, who has already donated works to associations, this time is committed to the animal cause.
The work is estimated at 19,000 euros
