A farm in Buckfastleigh, Devon, England has stumbled upon a novel idea to raise funds for their Farm Crisis Network charity.
The farm has enlisted the help of two piglets, known as “Van Snout” and “Bottabelli” who one day accidentally got into a few cans of non-toxic paint, and the next day had become artists.
Their work is comparable to a Jackson Pollock painting for its messy and loose design, and wild mix of colors.
Farm owner Chris Murray said “The pigs tended to go more for pointilism – they weren’t too keen on cubism. We think of them as our little Pigassos.”
The paintings sell for up to £16 each and have raised more than £150 so far, which is sure to grow once the news spreads.
The quality of the paintings is actually quite good, so good that you may be surprised to see who the true artists are behind the works.
