Pigs That Create Art
Are you wondering what the animals actually see when they paint? It’s said that some of them can’t even recognize colors, so every art piece is merely accidental. However, some can see certain color hues and may have an artistic ability that seems appealing to us after all.
Scientists have said that the behavior of animals has changed greatly and now they are said to have an aesthetic sense. Their artistic pieces prove that though, don’t you think?
This is Sammy and the way Sammy started painting is pretty funny. His owner attached a brush to his rubber bone and this is how he created an amazing art which was displayed in galleries in New York. The most expensive artwork sold for $1,700.
Turtle That Makes Art
Can you believe that this turtle has painted 827 paintings in total? We all have to admit that this is really fast and hard work for a turtle.
Would you like to visit an exhibition that has arts created by animals? Most of the pieces will be abstract. Humans find abstract art really appealing, and I bet that they would like to buy some of them and display them in their homes.
Dolphin That Paints
Everyone loves dolphins and now that you see that they are good at art, you will love them even more. This dolphin is painting under the guidance of an instructor and is entertaining visitors at Aquatic Park in Qingdao, Shandong Province, East China.
This is the parrot Brock who belongs to the species yellow-naped Amazon parrot. This takes places in the Zoo in Oakland and visitors enjoy a show where animals paint in order to raise money for charity.
Did you know that the elephants are given special brushes that prevent them to slip into the elephants’ trunks? Elephants are extremely good at controlling the brush since they have more than 40000 muscles in their trunk and they are able to create some pretty complex drawings.
People have different opinions when it comes to using elephants for “different and unusual” activities and painting has been judges as unethical and cruel by some. What’s your opinion on this topic?
When someone asks what do animals do, you will most certainly hear that they eat, sleep, drink and play. You will hardly hear that they create art and paint. Now you have even seen some of their masterpieces. Creative animals do exist, you only need to recognize their talents and work with them a bit. Like you do with a kid. When given the opportunity, they can really master their skills. Moreover, they can even get better than humans. Do you know other animals who paint? Feel free to share their artwork with us cause we would love to see it!
