'Monkey Business' - First Coat Mural, 2016
The Zookeeper's 2016 piece 'Monkey Business' looks to shine light on the medias influence on our lives. Turning on a television in the world today opens us up to an assault of information. Who decides what is and isn't important, and why exactly is it important? What do we take on board and what do we disregard? Maybe we're better off with it turned off.
