GTA 5 Monkey Mosaics locations for every piece of tiled art

GTA 5 Monkey Mosaics

GTA 5 monkey mosaics have sprung up all over Los Santos and Blaine County, having been distributed by a mystery artist who clearly has a simian inspiration for their work. They've installed 50 of these pieces in total, and it's worth your while to track them down as completing the set will unlock some 'special' Space Monkey outfits for Trevor, along with an extra mission to earn you the Dinka Go Go Monkey Blista car. 

To begin locating all of these instalments you need to finish the Complications mission with Franklin, which will earn you a text from Lamar telling you about artwork that has been appearing around town. You'll be able to 'collect' these displays in GTA 5 by taking pictures of them with your phone. Once you've snapped all 50 you'll unlock some Space Monkey clothes for Trevor, and make the final task available which unlocks the special Dinka Go Go Monkey Blista vehicle. Coming up we'll show you where to find every GTA 5 monkey mosaic so you can earn the rewards.

After a couple of days, a Random Event marker will appear on your map near the Los Santos Customs in Burton.

Sneak up on the monkey-masked artist from the west so you don't get spotted, and snap them in the act.

Let them escape, then wait for a text from Space Monkey informing you that a new vehicle has been delivered to the personal garage of the character who photographed the artist.

Congratulations - you have now unlocked the Dinka Go Go Monkey Blista!
