There’s a Pig Called “Pigasso” Who Paints With His Mouth

There’s a new painter making waves in the art community, and she most certainly did not go to art school. “Pigcasso,” a 3-year-old pig rescued a few years ago from an industrialized hog farming facility, has not only survived, she has thrived, painting gorgeous works of abstract art that have garnered a global following. The 1,000-pound pig is a master of the paintbrush, and, according to CBS, has sold paintings for thousands of dollars.

Residing at Farm Sanctuary SA near Cape Town, South Africa, the pig was drawn to brushes and paint, and clearly has a talent for it. “For some reason, she took a knack to the paintbrushes and it wasn’t long before she was dancing the brush across the canvas and selling artworks all over the world,” Joanne Lefson, the sanctuary’s founder, told CBS News.

Check out some of Pigcasso’s work — watching her paint is incredibly soothing.

This little piggy went to the market, this little piggy went to the store, and this little piggy clearly went to BLICK Art Materials.
