Chimp wins $10,000 prize in art contest

3 posts in this topic

A painting by a 37-year-old Louisiana primate who applies color with his tongue instead of a brush has been deemed the finest chimpanzee art in the land.

Brent, a retired laboratory animal, was the top vote-getter in an online chimp art contest organized by the Humane Society of the United States, which announced the results Thursday. He won $10,000 for the Chimp Haven sanctuary in northwest Louisiana.

Actually not a bad "Impressionist" painting... Better than about 50% of the human "art" I've seen lately...

$10 k - thats a lot of bananas!!!

where we come again to the all important question: Is something scribbled on a virgin canvas always art, and if it is: are the so called art specialists capable of recognizing it?
