Oct 14 2009Now That's Fine Art: A Coat Hanger Gorilla


Apparently this is old but I don't care because it's the first time I've seen it and if you've seen it before then maybe YOU should have sent it to me earlier. That's right, YOU'RE the one to blame here. Jerk. Anyway, this behemoth was created entirely out of bent coat hangers by Scottish artist David Mach. And I think we can all agree, it speaks volumes. About how, you know, gorillas like to hang from stuff. Get it? Because of the hangers!! God, I slay me.

Thanks to naas, who once Donkey Kong'ed two chicks at once and even though I don't know what that means I'm going to play along like I do. Sweeeet.

@8 ILLITERATE....(it says 'old' in the first line, try reading next time)

And see there IS a use for wire coathangers other than breaking into cars and as replacement car aerials.

This is old and I know I've seen it before, but the weird thing is I could SWEAR that I first saw it on this site.

Must See!!!


This is the coolest piece of art made out of hangers that I have ever seen. Granted its the only hanger art I have ever seen but it's still pretty damn cool.

I want that thing to give my girlfriend an abortion.

WOW! Love it!

This is the first time I've seen it, but the only websites I frequent are Geekologie and Redbox. Both for the same reason.

I have two thoughts:

Hellraiser Gorilla.

Don't-Come-Near-Me-With-The-Soft-Side-of-Velcro Gorilla.

This is terrible; it should be released into the wild with his brethren! Free hanger gorilla, free hanger gorilla!

I'm so putting my coat on that.

Gobsmacking. Awsum.

So be creative!A BIG COATgoralla,
