The wildly popular Wow! Gorillas project involved sixty leading artists and was timed to celebrate the 175th anniversary of Bristol Zoo. Running for ten weeks over the summer the initiative attracted visitors and locals alike to explore the city whilst drawing attention to the plight of gorillas in the wild.
Tom Lane (aka Ginger Monkey) and Ged Palmer, who donated their creativity for the cause at the last minute, were awarded a silver and a bronze in the Fresh Digital Awards for their hand-lettered gorilla, which also raised ?5,000 at a charity auction. Now there’s the chance to witness the behind the scenes production of the artwork from workshop to street, culminating in it’s grand unveiling in Bristol’s historic Queens Square.
