Gorilla Apparel-gorillazenbaseball_frontThe Gorillas are everywhere in Venice! For real – seen on many walls such as those inside NextSpace Venice and outside of Gjusta Bakery for example. Now you can wear one!

The Bodhi Gorilla mural seen on the walls at Gjusta inspires yogis and dancers alike, encouraging human nature to be openly interpreted and embraced along the way.

Isabelle Alford-Lago says:

“My gorillas are the uncensored human, laying bare a primitiveness we can all relate to. Despite their large hairy bodies and prominent nostrils, the gorillas redefine super star. Poised in the nude, they greet you with genuine self-confidence. This is why I also take my work to the public space, painting gorillas on exterior walls, so they exist within our “civilized” environment and remind us to be at peace with our own human nature.
