FORT PIERCE, FLORIDA: Pop singer Pink who is an animal lover, expressed her love by bringing home thousands worth of paintings done by chimpanzees. The ‘So What’ singer now owns an acrylic painting art piece created by two chimpanzees, Patty and Kramer worth $5,000. The pair lives at the Save the Chimps sanctuary with 226 other members, claims the spokesperson from the organization. The work done by these chimps will be on exhibition in the first-ever art exhibit opening at Miami’s Art Basel, on November 30.
The funds generated will be then be used for the benefit of the animal sanctuary in Fort Pierce, Florida, which is home to one of the largest chimpanzee sanctuaries on the planet. "Chimps share 98% of our DNA. They are similar to humans emotionally, physically, and even creatively,” said Ana Paula Tavares, CEO of Save the Chimps. Pink bought the painting online, that has been labeled a "masterpiece." It is a blue, white, and pink piece of art, and created on black canvas. The ‘Never Gonna Not Dance Again’ singer was excited when she heard that painting is therapeutic to chimps, just like to humans, reports People.

Pink, an active member of the PETA was seen in December 2021 in New York City’s Times Square where she said, "I would like to say I've always been fur-free. Unfortunately, I went through a selfish phase and wore fur on a couple of occasions. But I wised up and now boycott fur completely. I wish everyone was forced to learn the horrors that these animals go through for fashion trends.”
Save the Chimps provides life-long care for chimpanzees rescued from research laboratories, the pet trade, and the entertainment industry. One can also purchase their art or can even adopt one on their official website.
Earlier, Pink announced her Summer Carnival 2023 tour, where other artists like Brandi Carlile, DJKidCutUp, and Pat Benatar will be present. She made it public on her Twitter account where she also shared a cute video with Brandi Carlile. Pink in the video is seen occupied with her phone and says, "Sorry, I'm not trying to ignore you. I just have to make a really important phone call." She then calls Carlile and starts the conversation in a playful manner. Pink then asks the ‘Right on Time’ singer if will she wants to go on tour with her since she was afraid to ask directly to her face, “But will you go on tour with me?" "F**k yeah!" exclaimed Carlile on call. "Are we doing this?" “Yeah!” replied Pink, as per People.
