Paintings Inspired by Lunch

Before the nineteenth century it required real skill, study, and technique to be an artist, but since the Modern Art Movement, just about anyone can do it. Man, woman, child, you name it. You can even be a canine.

Although it can be a little disheartening to think that a dog has more artistic skill than myself, I must admit, going to see an art exhibition featuring the work of man's best friend is intriguing. Drawings by Dogs can be seen at The Gallery on the Corner of Battersea Park Road between the 11th - 20th October. All the artists are ex-/residents of Battersea Dogs & Cats Home, and you will be able to buy their masterpieces for 20. All the proceeds will go towards the feeding of these starving artists, which will in turn, help them create more drawings.

They paint during their lunch break, you see. Oil pastels are attached to their food bowls, and as each dog moves it around the floor while they eat, a new creative vision comes to life.

If you think your pooch is the next Pablo Pawcasso, then take them along, and for 20, they too can do some painting.
