Pigasso

Two piglets, some paint and some paper can mean a money making opportunity.

Staff at Pennywell Farm in Buckfastleigh, Devon, have taken a novel approach to fundraising as they turn their pigs into painters.Their miniature pigs have been creating works of modern art which sell for up to £16 each and have so far raised more than £150 for the Farm Crisis Network charity.Farm owner Chris Murray feels the work of their enthusiastic piglets’ snouts and trotters could stand alongside notable works of “messy” art such as that by world-reknowned Jackson Pollock.He said: “The pigs tended to go more for pointilism – they weren’t too keen on cubism. We think of them as our little Pigassos.” 

Art is anything you can get away with.
