Paintings by Species

For the last 50 years, zoo animals around the world have been tricked into painting. In many cases, the “art” has fetched big bucks: up to $25,000 for Chimp and Orangutan work. It’s time for a comprehensive art show to compare styles:

Maggie, Sea Lion, Pittsburgh Zoo

Congo, Chimpanzee, London (1950′s)

“Make Me Fly” by Seng Wong, Indian Elephant, Bali, Indonesia

Nonja, Orangutan, Schoenbrunn Zoo, Vienna, Austria

Lomako, Bonobo, Milwaukee County Zoo, Milwaukee WI, USA

Anonymous Great Ape, Mefou Forest Reserve, Camaroon

    I loved making this quilt, so much, I am working on it yet again! Hopefully I’ll have more to share next week, so far it’s in pieces.

    I guess I should fill something out although I’m here visiting. Thanks for putting up great stuff. It’s asking to get a internet website here even though I’m posting this, so here’s one which I was just checking out. Acquire treatment.

    Good collection Gisele. I’m personally too impatient to try to navigate an overly busy or cluttered site. It really is good to see far more persons moving towards a additional simple/minimalist style.

The site is currently under maintenance and will be back shortly. New comments have been disabled during this time, please check back soon.
