2013 (March/July) Great Gorillas Project Paignton Zoo (Darth Vader Gorilla)

CHARITY - GREAT GORILLAS - DARTH VADER GORILLA

The The Great Gorillas Project is a public Art project by Wild in Art raising money and awareness for@PaigntonZoo.  My Darth Vader design was sponsored and chosen by Cavanna Homes Ltd.  If you are familiar with the cow parade, the project will be very similar, with numerous painted Gorillas on public display for 10 weeks in Devon, Exeter and Torquay during June/July before being auctioned for charity. Keep up to date with the project by following on Twitter @GreatGorillas @Wild_in_Art @PaigntonZoo @mandiipope or @DarthGorilla www.greatgorillas.org.uk www.mandiipope.com
