Once: Original Painting By Chimpanzee

Found 12th Oct 2008
Win an original painting by chimpanzee acting legend, Cheeta!

Cheeta starred in the 1939 film Tarzan, and has outlived all his co-stars to reach the age of 75. He withdrew from the limelight in 1964 after biting his Doctor Dolittle co-star Rex Harrison, and has retired to an old chimps' home in Palm Springs, Florida.

Following his departure from the big screen, he developed a wonderful talent as an abstract artist. With the use of a paintbrush and as many bright colours as possible, Cheeta loves to while away the hours getting creative on a canvas.

His work has received considerable critical acclaim and helped raise money for his endangered species. Known as 'ape-stract' art, it is becoming more and more in demand thanks to Cheeta's extraordinary tell-all autobiography, Me Cheeta.

This painting actually appears in the plate section of the book and the caption reveals: "Rock Formations, Dusk, Joshua Tree National Park (1997), an interesting failure, if I'm being wholly honest."
