    Pigcasso who likes to paint

    The whole story began in 2016. Joane Lefson saved a one-month-old piglet from going to the slaughterhouse. The pig went to live on a farm in the town of Franschhoek (South Africa). Once the woman noticed that Pigcasso was eating or destroying everything in his pigsty. He only spared the brushes, which remained intact. At the time, Joane recognized that the animal had an artistic soul.

    The woman purchased a canvas, chose paint colors, and Pigcasso grabbed a brush in his snout. From that moment, new paintings began to emerge. Man and animal work tirelessly together. The result is numerous and extremely colorful works. Some of them are exhibited in the Amsterdam gallery OINK! Pigcasso signs his canvases with an imprint of his snout.
