The few artists who have tried to use the black and white colobus monkey in Uganda are not painters. In this research, I therefore established the condition of the black and white colobus monkey in Uganda, why limited artists have conserved through their paintings the black and white colobus monkey, and produced Paintings Inspired by the black and white colobus monkey for conservation agenda in Uganda. Three studio guiding questions were posed, (i) what is the status of the black and white colobus monkey in Uganda? (ii) why have limited artist through their art works conserved the black and white colobus monkey in Uganda? (iii).
