Florentijn Hofman’s Rubber Duck recently departed from Los Angeles docks after a popular series of events following the Tall Ships Festival, but the Dutch artist shows no signs of slowing down as he has unveiled a brand-new inflatable art piece at London’s famous River Thames! Titled the HippopoThames, the new sculpture is over 68 feet long, and was created to commemorate the Totally Thames Festival which will take place at locations through the River Thames for the rest of September.


Hofman’s HippopoThames is based on prehistoric hippos that used to inhabit the River Thames, and is scheduled to be displayed at the Nine Elms distcit in London until its departure on September 28th. Although there have been no announced plans on if the HippopoThames will visit other locations along the river or even worldwide, Hofman will surely be debuting more art pieces across the world in the neat future.
