World premiere of a high-realist portrait of the Cross River Gorilla

Vancouver, BC, Canada - The first ever painting of a Cross River gorilla, Africa's most endangered primate, will be unveiled to the public for the first time on 19 October 2008, at the Mountain View Conservation and Breeding Centre, in Langley, BC, Canada.

The author of this unique portrait is Canadian artist Daniel Taylor, who travelled along with his wife Ginette to the jungle of south-western Cameroon's Lebialem Highlands, to learn more about this critically endangered species - with only 250 to 300 individuals left in the wild.
