Original art by Sebastian on a 9×12″ flat-panel canvas

Art is an enrichment activity offered to our residents. Some chimps enjoy it, while others prefer not to. The choice is theirs to make.


About the Artist

I was born June 20, 1994, at the Coulston Foundation research laboratory in Alamogordo, NM, to my mother, Karen, and father, Bubba. I remained with my mother for two days before being forcibly removed from her and taken to the laboratory nursery. Based on my records, I was never assigned to a biomedical research study. I shared a cage with five other male chimps my age.

In 2002, Save the Chimps took over the Coulston Foundation and rescued me. Today I live on a three-acre island at Save the Chimps in Fort Pierce, FL. I am a member of a large chimpanzee family known as Ron’s Family. I am energetic and playful, and I enjoy painting as an enrichment activity.
