The Gorillas of Isabelle Alford-Lago

Based in Venice California, Isabelle Alford-Lago paints gorillas with attitude. Inspired by people watching, which Venice Beach is a perfect local for, Isabelle channels human character in the hairy guise of prime mates.
“I remember when I first moved here I would bike around and take pictures, documenting what I was seeing. And somehow my observations were translated into big attitudinal, self- content gorillas. I think this character is my reflection on these real basic behaviors you can see in humans.”
