Two abstract paintings by Bubbles, Michael famous pet chimpanzee, have been put up for sale at the Art Basel Gallery in Miami, Florida. They are priced at $1,500 each and are displayed alongside paintings by other modern artists.
All the funds raised during the ‘Endangered’ exhibition will be transferred to the Centre for Great Apes, the place where Bubbles has lived for the last 8 years.
The Centre is a sanctuary for 29 chimpanzees and 15 orang-utans, some of them confiscated from illegal exotic pet traders, others having come from biomedical research labs and showbiz.
