 For Abstract Painting 'Brent' The Chimpanzee Won 10,000 Dollars as Prize

A chimpanzee named Brent has reportedly won 10,000 dollars at an art contest in the US. The prize money is going towards his home sanctuary Chimp Haven in north-west Louisiana.

The 37-year-old former lab animal Brent got the most votes in the chimpanzee art contest organized by the Humane Society of the United States for his painting, which he made by using his tongue to apply delicate smears of blue, violet, yellow and turquoise instead of a brush, the Guardian reported.


Chimp Haven's president and CEO Cathy Willis Spraetz held the canvas up to the mesh of his indoor cage to help Brent create his winning painting.

Five other sanctuaries competed using paintings created by the primates during "enrichment sessions", and the winning sanctuaries will receive grants from the HSUS to help care for chimpanzees retired from research, entertainment and the pet trade.
