    Default Pekingese dog paints abstract art

    A tiny Pekingese dog is sending the art world barking mad after his owner discovered his hidden talent for producing abstract works of art.
    Little Ziggy is making a roaring trade from his work which fetch up to 170 a painting.
    Owner Elizabeth Monacelli said he three-year-old pet began painting about three years ago after she encouraged him to pick up a paintbrush.

    And unlike many struggling artists, Ziggy is doing a roaring trade with his works in big demand across his home town of Fallbrook, California.
    Ms Monacelli, a violin instructor, attaches a paintbrush to the end of a paper roller, which Ziggy either bites into or attaches to his snout to paint on canvas.
    But she said Ziggy is a temperamental artist who's prone to bouts of ennui and existential doubts.

    'He enjoys painting but has to be in the right frame of mind for it,' Ms Monacelli said.
    It can take Ziggy days or weeks to finish a canvas, as the little dog can only carry his artistic inspirations for a minute or two at a time.
    'He'll go for a while then just roll himself into a little ball and start snoring,' Ms Monacelli said.
    'Or he wanders off looking for snacks.'

    Ms Monacelli said her pet can take days to produce one painting as he can only work for minutes at a time

    The sample piece looks faked. The brushstrokes are distributed too evenly. Every piece needs to come with a video of it's creation to prove the owner didn't do it.

    I've never bought into the whole animal-as-artist craze. If you like it, that's fine. But it's not art.

    If I did something like this, you would call me retarded. But since Poochie did it, it's practically a Picasso.

    Considering dogs are half colorblind, he obviously didn't pick the color, and considering he didn't pick up a paintbrush and go at it on his own suggests ITS JUST A DOG

    yeah, i don't consider that art either.

    the simple act of creation does not equal art.

    Art is creation refined with talent, technique, emotion, effort, detail and training.

    People's concept of art today is ridiculous. Simply making something does not make it art, it's just a creation.

    I was thinking the exact same thing. It is not nearly as cute as the elephant who painted a picture of an elephant.

    I love dogs as well, but that dog is ugly. Just wanted to throw that in.
