Pigs Gone Wild, Ipswich

27 June-2 September 2016

The streets of Ipswich have been taken over by stunning pig sculptures as part of the highly anticipated Pigs Gone Wild interactive art trail and Allan has created a unique pig for the event.

“The glamorous Piggy Stardust, created by Allan Williams, is sure to dazzle the residents of Ipswich with his star power and prowess. A tribute to David Bowie, one of the most influential artists of the 20th century, Piggy’s flair adds a glam-rock edge to the Pigs Gone Wild trail. Piggy played guitar – and boy, could he play!”

You can see Piggy Stardust for yourself until 2 September on St Nicholas Street in Ipswich next to the statue of Cardinal Wolsey. You can also follow the trail to see the other 38 pigs.
