Pigcasso was the most accomplished animal artist in history and you’re invited to visit the animal Sanctuary where she lived, painted and rose to global fame. Rescued in 2016 by Farm Sanctuary SA's founder and director, Joanne Lefson. Lefson noticed that the pig showed an interest in some old brushes that were laying in her sty. It didn't take long before, well, the pig was painting - and causing quite a stir. From CNN to BBC Headline News, Pigcasso’s journey from rescued ‘pork chop’ to celebrated international art sensation has captured the World’s imagination. With the duo’s artworks being sold for millions of rands to art collectors around the world, notable collectors include Rafa Nadal, Dr Jane Goodall and George Clooney. In 2021, Pigcasso made international headlines when she sold ‘WILD AND FREE’ for 20 000GBP. This sale was an official world record for the highest-selling artwork ever painted by an animal. Pigcasso also designed the 2019 SWATCH watch which sold out globally within hours.

Learn More: Pigcasso became the first animal artist to host a solo art exhibition – which included the Netherlands (Amsterdam 2021) Germany (Hann-Munden 2022) France (St. Tropez 2023) China (Shanghai/Beijing 2023/2024(currently active) and the United Kingdom (London December 2023). Proceeds from the sale of Jo and Pigcasso’s artworks benefit Farm Sanctuary SA – the inspiring registered NPO in Franschhoek South Africa where they lived and painted together, until Pigcasso’s final farewell in 2024. Although Pigcasso is no longer on the farm, her legacy lives on and guests can see her artwork on display and experience the place, she lived, loved and painted.

Activities: Pigcasso, the Painting Pig may have passed away in March 2024, but her art and wine are still available - as is a barnyard of rescues from sheep to goats. Wine Tasting, Farm Sanctuary
