Paddington Bear statue by Zaha Hadid Foundation at the Royal Exchange

The bear will be exhibited until 30 December alongside fifty other Paddington statues, created by artists, designers and athletes; each located in one of Paddington Bear’s favourite places.

The classic colours of Paddington Bear’s signature hat, duffle coat and Wellingtons are re-imagined as a perfect gradient, which camouflages the bear, yet makes him perhaps even more recognisable,’ says Zaha Hadid.

Other designers include the designer Lulu Guinness, footballer David Beckham, photographer Ian Rankin, model Kate Moss, actresses Nicole Kidman and Sandra Bullock and the comedian Stephen Fry.

Eight miniature bears will be available for sale at the Paddington Bear concept store at Selfridges to raise funds for the NSPCC.

The Zaha Hadid Foundation Paddington Bear will be included with artworks by Mathew Barney and Tracey Emin to be auctioned on 10 December 2014 at Christie’s; raising  funds for NSPCC and ChildLine service.
