Brent is a chimpanzee who lives at Chimp Haven in Keithville, La. Brent is 37 years old and has lived at Chimp Haven since 2006. He is protective of Grandma, Chimp Haven's oldest resident. He loves to laugh and play. Brent paints only with his tongue. His unique approach and style, while a little unorthodox, results in beautiful pieces of art.

Brent's tongue-painting creation won the popular vote in an art contest conducted by the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) in August 2013. Here are the other winners and contestants. [Read full story on the chimp art contest]
