This Grumpy Looking Chimpanzee Won First Place In An Art Contest

Sorry humans, your art is bad and you should feel bad.

1. This is Brent, he’s a 37-year-old chimpanzee and he recently won a Louisiana art contest. The art contest was for chimps only and Brent won $10,000 for his sanctuary.


2. The handlers at Chimp Haven, where Brent lives, told The Associated Press that Brent couldn’t be reached for comment because he was asleep. Artists, am I right?

3. The competing paintings were voted on by 27,000 people, including famed Chimpanzee researcher Jane Goodall.
