Monkey Modern - Simian Portraits by Rob Elliott
Swing on by the vibrant new Flying Pony gallery to see Rob Elliott's first large painting show in five years.
The featured monkeys – from Africa, India, South America and Indonesia – may be endangered and small. But in these paintings, they overwhelm the viewer with their personality and intelligence. Placed upon modernist backgrounds reminiscent of colour field paintings, the subjects become pop stars that demand our attention.
