‘Cheeky Monkey’ or ‘The Origin of the Species’ presents a scene, originally a 17th century painting, in which the pictorial elements are isolated by the flooded red. The painting is in the process of being made or unmade.


The head of Surreal artist Salvador Dali has become the head of the startled monkey BUT his reflection in the mirror remains that of the monkey’s head. Dali is the ‘cheeky monkey’ and one of the originators of the surrealist species of artists.
