They say that art is subjective, but one new artist is challenging the perceptions of art lovers everywhere with his abstract work. The reason this new artist is creating such a stir is simple; he’s a dog.
Ziggy is a three-year-old Pekingese and he’s been ‘painting’ for the last two years. Unlike many artists, including Picasso, Ziggy isn’t poor. Ziggy’s art is selling for up £171 per painting to art lovers and collectors.
Naturally Ziggy is from the USA, living in Falbrook with his owner, Elizabeth Monacelli. Ziggy paints his canvas paintings by biting into a paintbrush and ‘painting’ his masterpieces on canvas.
Elizabeth even claims that Ziggy is prone to bouts of artist’s block sometimes:
He enjoys painting but has to be in the right frame of mind for it
He’ll go for a while then just roll himself into a little ball and start snoring.
Or he wanders off looking for snacks.
Does your dog have any artistic tendencies?
