Meet Pockets Warhol. A white-capped capuchin monkey whose name was inspired by his unruly white hair’s resemblance to the Pop master Andy Warhol’s. Looking like the famous artist aside, Pockets is becoming a recognized artist in his own right.
While most human artists use only a paintbrush, Pockets incorporates his two hands, two feet, a tail, tongue and furry butt as well. Some critics compare Pockets’ work to Jackson Pollock and Joan Mitchell. And he has fans all over the world who buy his pieces for hundreds of dollars.
Being true to the creative stereotype, Pockets has an an unpredictable side and has been known to act out. At times, he eats the paint. Ahh, those temperamental artists.
