Original Chimpanzee Art
Sharing 98.6% of the same DNA as humans, it seems only natural that some of the chimps that live at the sanctuary will paint if handed a paint-brush and canvas; it’s also a form of enrichment that some of STC’s residents enjoy. The chimps work intently - swirling their brushes, fingers and sometimes their tongues, in circles or broad strokes - filling the once blank canvas with color.
Each original chimpanzee painting is accompanied by a photo and biography on the chimp artist.
We hope that you find their work inspiring and not only does it make a great gift, it’s a wonderful way to show your support!
