GoGoGorillas! will celebrate all of Norwich’s communities and see the streets, parks, neighbourhoods and public spaces transformed into an open air, free to view, visual cacophony of colourful stories, art and creativity.

This would not have been capable without the amazing designs and work by the artists. The artists below have been sponsored, have painted their gorillas and their sculptures are ready for the streets.

We would like to thank all the amazing artwork that has been submitted to GoGoGorillas! Norwich 2013.
