Wait till you meet Pigcasso.
Pigcasso is a pig who was rescued from a slaughterhouse in South Africa in May 2016 when she was just a little piglet. She was rescued by was Joanne Lefson, founder of Farm Sanctuary SA, which is located in the outskirts of Cape Town, South Africa.
Joanne was just recruiting animals for her sanctuary when she took Pigcasso in because well, she thought pigs were intelligent and cute. Little did she know that Pigcasso was going to prove to be this super uniquely talented artist, who would one day enjoy fame from all over the world for her art!
It was not long before Pigcasso showcased her talent in the arts. One day, when Joanne gave Pigcasso some things to play around with, and without a pause she went for the paintbrush and started painting a beautiful abstract piece of art.
It was shocking for Joanne. Well, nobody could have seen it coming!
“It wasn’t long before she was dancing the brush across the canvas,” Lefson told the media. “Pigcasso is a unique, one-of-a-kind, talented diva pig.”
According to artists and art lovers from across the world, Pigcasso’s paintings have a deep sense of passion and emotions with every stroke her brush makes. Pigcasso’s art was displayed on an online store and that was the start of her international fame. She instantly grabbed the attention of various art lovers from around New York who were willing to pay $800 for a piece.
Now, every day, Pigcasso sells art on her online store that’s worth almost $1,600 each. Yep, she is a famous artist! And all the money goes towards the operating costs of the sanctuary.
She has a signature print along with the certificate of authenticity from Farm Sanctuary SA.
Pigcasso has even worked with Nissan and Swatch for advertising. How cool is that?
“People are so far removed from what they eat and the average consumer would never eat meat if they knew how these animals were raised,” Joanne said, in the hope that people would stop eating animals once they see the kind of talent they can possess.
Pigcasso is on fire with her wonderful art and the world is going crazy. Check her art out at Pigcasso’s Art and get ready to be blown away.
