Pigasso: This Pig Enjoys Painting And Has Become The World’s First Pig Artist

Joane Lefson rescued a one-month-old piglet from a slaughterhouse and soon realized that the animal was special. According to Joane, of his own free will, the little pig started painting canvases in a sanctuary located in South Africa.

The little pig is known as Pigcasso and one of his artworks has just broken a record. The artistic pig made a painting that was sold for roughly 20 thousand euros. The work, “Wild and Free”, was bought by a German person 72 hours after being put up for sale and surpassed the record for the most expensive sale of a work of art created by an animal. Before, the record belonged to the chimpanzee Congo, which sold a painting for around 14 thousand euros in 2005.
