In this artwork, we can see a girl taking her pet, a mini pig, for a walk around the city.
Since the 1960s, raising, adopting, or buying mini pigs has become fashionable. It’s known that many undergo genetic manipulation that causes malformation at birth and also instant death. Only a few manage to survive, while those that do will likely have a short life.
On the canvas, cold blues contrast with the red of the pig. The artist critiques our consumer society.
This painting is made in oil and acrylics on canvas.
