WAM January 7-8 Nick Kokis
Nick Kokis is a visual artist living and working in St. John’s.
But Nick’s most recent public exposure comes out of Montreal. Nick has created twelve profiles of members of the Fauna family.
The Fauna Foundation is a chimpanzee refuge based in Montreal, created by Gloria Grow and Dr. Richard Allan. And Nick’s twelve portraits grace the twelve months of Fauna’s 2012 calendar. But there are not only chimps on these pages, but also pigs, dogs, llamas and more.
I spoke with Nick yesterday and asked him about the Fauna foundation and how he found out about it.
