At first glance, the painting above looks like a piece that might be hanging in any art gallery or museum. You're probably asking yourself whose work it is. Can't quite put your finger on it? That's because it's not actually the masterpiece of a famous abstract painter. It was painted by Brent, a 37-year-old chimpanzee!

Brent lives at Chimp Haven in Louisiana and recently won first place and $10,000 in the Humane Society's Chimpanzee Art Contest. Even more astonishing is Brent's artistic process: the creative chimp doesn't use brushes—he paints with his tongue!
