Tim Bushe, Bright Old Thing!

Tim Bushe is well known and very much admired in our our neighbourhood as he created this fantastic herd of elephants from a troublesome corner hedge a few years ago. No longer can unwholesome acts be carried out behind dense cover of privet and the area now boasts a wonderful piece of much-loved public art.

Now such artistry (and good deeds) have not gone unnoticed and Tim has been espied on The Great British Garden Revival on the BBC as well as The One Show and has featured in various articles in the local and national press.

Currently, his work is on display in a window at Selfridges in Oxford Street as part of their ‘Bright Old Things’ exhibition featuring 16 ‘individuals who’ve embraced a new vocation later in life’. Tim is still working full time as an architect, but having studied sculpture earlier in his career, creates marvellous pieces of topiary at weekends to raise money for the Hft charity who look after his sister. Donations can be made on his Just Giving page.

Venture inside Selfridges to see more of Tim’s topiary and other artworks by Tim and his fellow creatives in the dedicated ‘Bright Old Things’ pop-up space. The exhibition continues until the end February.
