- "Dawg, you seen this monkey dude doin his street art shit round the city? Dude is real, man. Them some authentic ass lines."
- — Lamar Davis
Monkey Mosaics are exclusive collectibles in the enhanced version of Grand Theft Auto V. Players can access this content regardless of whether they are a returning player or not, although limited for non-returning players.
After completing the mission Chop, Franklin will receive a text message from Lamar saying that a street artist has been painting monkey mosaics in walls across Los Santos. After this, the player will need to photograph all of these simian-inspired mosaics that the mysterious street artist is tagging across the walls of the city. The player can photograph the mosaics with any protagonist, despite the fact that only Franklin receives the text message. There are a total of 50 monkey mosaics to be photographed.
This appears to be a publicity stunt by the Go Go Space Monkey company in preparation for the upcoming film Space Monkey 3D, as the company thanks the player for taking part once the event is completed.

Once all the mosaics have been photographed, the player will receive a message saying that monkey outfits have been delivered to Trevor's wardrobe. There will be 4 shorts, 5 tank tops and 3 dresses inspired by the monkey mosaics in his wardrobe.
The Monkey Mosaic random event will also become available and once completed a text message will confirm the Go Go Monkey Blista will be available at the protagonists' garages, in the "Special Vehicles" section.
If the player kills the artist, it will prevent the player from getting the Go Go Monkey Blista and the Monkey clothes and there will be no opportunities again to unlock the rewards anymore; as such, killing the artist comes as a fairly pointless option.
Note: Although Monkey Mosaics are a feature available for all players and everyone is able to get the clothing items, the random event would be triggered ONLY for returning players. Therefore, the Go Go Monkey Blista is unobtainable for non-returning players.
- The mosaics might be inspired by well-known French street artist Invader, who creates similar 8-bit mosaics. These are found in cities around the world, including Los Angeles.
- The first monkey mosaic's design is unique comparing to other mosaics.
- The monkey mosaics are already present at the beginning of the game unlike other collectibles, for example letter scraps which appear only after a Weazel News radio broadcast about Leonora Johnson's unsolved murder. Subsequently, one can start collecting snapshots of the monkey mosaics after completing Franklin and Lamar and not have to wait for Lamar's text about the mosaics.
- The mosaics also appear in Grand Theft Auto Online though these cannot be interacted at all by the GTA Online Protagonist.
