When visiting the London Zoo for a college project, I was walking in front of a big cage trying to see what animal was behind the bars and I realised there was a big chimp trying to eat a banana with one hand and covering it’s face with a blanket with the other. Made me feel like a nosy idiot! It just clicked! I always hated caged animals but that image was what gave me the idea of having …us behind bars, as an anti-poster for the zoo!
