Pig Art or Pigasso Paintings

Coxsoft Art has pointed out some hot new art talent in the United Kingdom. The artists reside at the Pennywell Farm in Buckfastleigh and are working to raise money for the Farm Crisis Network charity. Child prodigies must be looking over their shoulders now as these pigs could be serious competition.

“Trotters Independent Painters began their career by accident when the piglets broke loose at a craft fair at their home, and began investigating tins of non-toxic paint with their snouts and trotters.” Daily Mail

And their finished work looks like this..

I think they would sell more posters of the little pigs than the finished paintings by them, as they are little cuties. Coxsoft Art thinks the British artists Gilbert and George might be starting to worry about the new competition. I think if cuteness has anything to do with it, G&G have no chance.

  5. You’re absolutely right. I’m sure the piglet photos would sell better than their art. And G & G have no chance of breaking into the cutie market.
    Don’t worry too much about the bacon. These are miniature pigs, and I don’t think they end up on the dinner plate. I might be wrong….

    They don’t look like miniature pigs, they look like baby meat pigs. They start out very tiny and can grow to weight a thousand pounds. Most are killed at around 5 months of age, though.

    They are so sweet and intelligent.
