It's Pablo PIGcasso everybody!
(Patent on the name coming soon, thank you-thank you) 

A pig who escaped slaughter is now living out her life painting original works that have sold for up to $2,000.

Joanne Lefson, rescued the female pig when she was just a piglet. Lefson manages the South African Farm Sanctuary, which is a haven for rescued farm animals where the pig now lives.

Joanne says, "She's very smart and intelligent so I placed a few balls and some paintbrushes and things in her pen, and it wasn't long before I discovered that she really liked the bristles and the paintbrush...She just really took a knack for it."

Funds from the art sales go towards feeding the animals and maintaining the sanctuary.

Other name ideas include: Salvador Piggy, Vincent Van Sow, Jackson Piglet, Andy Boarhol, Camille Pigarro, and Francis Bacon....take it or leave it.

Thank you, thank you I'll be here all night
