A Breathtaking Exhibition About Endangered Animals Has Opened In London

A stunning, interactive art exhibition tackling issues of endangerment is now open at the Crypt Gallery in Euston.

Called Missing, this fleeting show features a number of painting, sculptures and installations; all focused on certain endangered animals from different parts of the world – from our very own bumble bees to South African penguins.


The works have all been designed by Louis Masai and include a spectacular animatronic penguin, three very poignant bee sculptures, and a number of thought-provoking paintings. The artist has recreated a natural forest setting within the Crypt, using real trees, grass and honey to make it a truly immersive experience.

Masai says, “Climate change is in full effect, with one of the major factors being the ‘6th Mass Extinction’. Species are becoming extinct or missing in our biodiverse world.This is a real issue that we face as humans, and as an artist, I feel it’s my duty to draw attention to this issue.Through my work I hope to remind people of the urgency we face, highlighting our place amongst creatures who are a critical part of our delicate ecosystem”.

Location: The Crypt Gallery, Euston Road, Kings Cross, NW1 2BA. See it on Google Maps.
Opening hours: 12-6pm, 25-27th May.
