Pigasso: The little oinks making a splash in the art world

These little piglets are so adorable you'll never eat another bacon sandwich again. Farm owner Chris Murray uses his piglets' snouts to create original paintings that some say could be compared to the works of Pollock maybe? The little piglets, aka Trotters Independent Painters, fell into the industry by accident when they broke loose at a craft fair and started to rummage around in the different coloured paints. The modern art created by the piglets sell for up to $35 each, and have raised almost $400 for a farm charity.

The pigs tended to go more for pointilism - they weren't too keen on cubism. We think of them as our little Pigassos
