When a resident of South Africa, Joanne Lefson, rescued a pig from a slaughterhouse, she could not imagine that this was a special animal. The pig grew up a little and took up painting on her own initiative. Now the unusual artist is called Pigcasso, and his works are bought by connoisseurs for a lot of money.
Pigkasso has been living in a South African sanctuary for rescued animals since 2016 and is constantly creating. For five years, an unusual artist has painted many paintings, some of which have been auctioned. Collectors willingly pay round sums for paintings painted by a pig, and Pigcasso generously donates part of the proceeds to animal welfare funds.
And it all started with the fact that the savior of the piglet left him at home unattended. When she came to her senses, she saw that the animal had gnawed and broken everything that was lying on the table in the room. The pig spared only the brushes with which Joan worked.
The artist saw this as a kind of sign and decided to develop a craving for creativity in the pig. Everything worked out for her and Pigcasso suddenly began to draw, and then paint pictures with paints. When a talented pig is enthusiastically working on another masterpiece, she looks very much like a person. Pigcasso is very focused and it seems that he is even visited by some inspiration.
A painting pig is not a circus act for onlookers. Pigcasso earns more than some human artists. For example, his last work called "Wild and Free" ("Wild and free") went under the hammer for 20 thousand euros (1.7 million rubles). Joan Lefson believes that this is not the limit, as her ward develops and develops skills. The artist even has his own website. There you can see Pigcasso's paintings and buy the ones you like.
In addition to paintings, Pigcasso offers artistic painting of surfboards, T-shirts and even watch faces. From those who want to get a designer thing there is no end and the master creates, tirelessly piglet.
It's easy to fall in love with pigs, cute, albeit peculiar animals. They even keep them at home.
