My impression of a magical photo taken by a dear friend. "Contemplating Existence" is a male Silverback Virunga Mountain gorilla, the patriarch of one of 11 families in the Rwandan mountains. I wanted to portray a whimsical storybook image of vulnerability no matter of your size.
My hopes are to bring attention to the real threat of humans poaching, diseases like Ebola, and climate change which is challenging their existence. Click here or more information http://art4apes.com/about/
I enjoy painting unique and lively paintings, inspired from photos sent by the people who treasure them.
