This is the much misunderstood and maligned Cokey preparing to express himself and his inner feelings through the medium of peanut butter, on the canvas of wall. Cokey has limited access to paints and paper as he is clearly a suppressed monkey held in inhumane circumstances by the evil dictator Giantweazle
who refuses to even let him have his own blog
, who although relenting to allowing Cokey his own blog still watches his behaviour closely. Cokey is thus forced to resort to a form of eco vandalism to practise his art, and much like the Chapman brothers chooses a medium that will be affected by time with blooming mould and an odd musty smell, is he, perhaps, representing through a process of natural decay the transience of all human (and monkey) existence, and the futility of change? We can only presume, for Cokey as yet has not spoken to us his words of monkey wisdom.
Thankfully Cokey doesn't seem to follow the school of art of that tart Emmin.
