The piece pays tribute to Harambe, a gorilla who was killed after a three-year-old boy climbed into its enclosure at the Cincinnati Zoo in America.
“I wanted to paint Harambe on a black background to give him the feeling of darkness stepping into the light – like going to heaven and leaving this harsh and sometimes brutal world he was forced to live in.” Robert Oxley
