| Mark Coreth, project founder, is internationally known as a master sculptor of animals in motion. He has always drawn his inspiration from direct encounters with life in the wild, a passion that has taken him from the mountains of Ladakh, to Rajasthan, the African plains, the Falklands and now the Arctic. Since 1986 he has regularly held exhibitions at the Sladmore Contemporary Gallery in London. His most recent exhibition, 'Serengeti', was held at the Sladmore in November 2008.
Mark's specially commissioned work includes a flying albatross for the Falklands Memorial Chapel, a large figure for the opening of the Globe Theatre, and the monumental Millennium sculpture, 'The Waterhole', outside the Natural History Museum, which incorporates over fifty animals. He has also exhibited in Paris, New York and Sydney. Recent work includes a life-sized charging bull elephant in bronze for commissions in Italy and Australia. They are amongst many private and public pieces that can be found all over the world.
