Watch as Brazilian rescue dogs create artworks for charity

These pooches are giving Jackson Pollock a run for his money.

A new art campaign called Canismo has given creative freedom to a group of dogs in an effort to raise awareness about the plight of shelter dogs in Brazil.

In a video from Canismo, several dogs are seen walking up to hanging canvases before a stream of nontoxic paint (a mixture of cornstarch and food coloring that was completely edible and harmless) pours on top of them and the inevitable shaking ensues.


The project’s “artists” wound up creating 18 unique works, which will be shown and available for sale at the Perestroika Sao Paulo in Brazil on May 9th. The funds raised will benefit animal shelters in Brazil.

People are also being invited to adopt one of the ‘artists’ behind the work.
