  • Faces of gorillas in clay by Ursula Repp (© Angela Meder)

Gorillas have inspired artists since the first reports about them. Some of them have dedicated their whole work to these fascinating apes, others have depicted their faces or tried to express – in their own way as artists – concern about the gorillas’ situation and the threats that they face. We here introduce artists who have portrayed gorillas in many different ways or even deal with gorillas constantly.
