“Orang-utans, gorillas, chimpanzees and an elephant are among animal artists being given their own exhibition of paintings.

The event, opening next week at University College London’s Grant Museum of Zoology, will feature works from zoos in the US and Thailand.

One of the highlights is a painting of a flowerpot by Boon Me, a former Thai logging elephant. Another is a finger painting entitled Digit Master by a chimp called Bakhari.”
