Example of Nonja's Artwork

Nonja, 29 years old, has been painting since 1992.

She inherited her paint set from Johnny the Chimpanzee who started painting in the 1950's at the zoo.

Nonja's artistic journey has not been an easy ride: at first her boyfriend, Vladimir, tried to eat her finished work.

Now Vladimir has to sulk in a separate cage.

Vladmir once tried painting but stuck the paintbrushes through the canvas.
