Piggy piggy piggggyyyy! The After! I won a contest hosted by Farm Sanctuary where I had the opportunity to participate in an art as advocacy project, the #pigpicture to raise awareness of the horrendous pig production that happens here in North Carolina. North Carolina is the second largest producer of pig products in the U.S, and the effects this has on the people and the environment here is huge. Pigs produce 2-5 times more waste than humans... there being 9 millions pigs in NC, (10 million people) that's a lotta poo!!!! And that poo's gotta go somewhere.... that place being the poorest counties in NC, sprinkling the toxic waste everywhere at the detriment of those living around the hog farms, many of them being ancestors of the last slaves to be freed in NC. So! I painted this piggy to help raise awareness of this problem, and to spread the message that pigs deserve to be free of the control of others, just like any other being on this planet! They deserve to live joyous lives and to experience all that life offers, just as we desire in our lives as well! This lil guy will be hanging out at Sanctuary Brewing Company in Hendersonville if you're in the area and want to check it out! 🐷🐖🐷🐽🐷🐖 #pig #piggy #vegan #veganism #savethepiggies #love #freethepiggies #veganart #art #sculpture #painting #woo!
