Original Paintings by our Zoo Residents

Proceeds from each painting directly support the artist’s area at the ABQ BioPark.

From primate Picassos and rhinoceros Rothkos, our herd of talented artists has created a unique gallery of masterpieces to thrill collectors and animal enthusiasts alike.

Painting is an enrichment activity for the animals at the ABQ BioPark – it is mentally and physically stimulating. To ensure that painting remains enjoyable for the animals, the opportunity to paint is an occasional treat, not part of a daily routine. 

Our artists include penguins, elephants, gorillas, orangutans, alligators, arthropods, snakes, lions,hippos and more! Artwork is created with non-toxic paint using brushes or paws, noses, bellies, trunks, hooves, fingers or feet.
