70 six-foot-tall Morphs to take over central London

Next summer 70 sit-foot-tall Morphs will pop up around central London as part of Morph’s Epic Art Adventure.

The event is being put together by Aardman Animations alongside charity Whizz-Kidz.

The family-friendly art trail of colourful Morphs will span across iconic London landmarks including St Pauls, Tate Modern, Tower of London, Shakespeare’s Globe and Borough Market.

Morph is the iconic animated clay character who first appeared in 1977 in the BBC children’s programme Take Hart, and was a regular fixture on children’s television throughout the 70s and 80s.

Speaking about Morph’s Epic Art Adventure, Peter Lord, co-founder of Aardman and creator of Morph, said: “We are totally thrilled to be working with the excellent charity Whizz-Kidz on London’s first step-free art trail. Morph started his career in animation back in the seventies, appearing alongside Tony Hart on the artist’s work-table.

“Ever since he’s been a source of entertainment and inspiration for kids, with his unique blend of creativity, mischief and fun. I’m sure that local residents and visitors to London – young and old – will also be inspired to get creative and join Morph for an Epic Art Adventure.”
