These Shelter Dogs Became Artists For All The Right Reasons
A brilliant art movement created by an adorable group of dogs, Canismo is a new art campaign from Brazil that aims to help shelter animals.
In the slow-motion video below, man’s best friends were given creative freedom in an effort to support and promote the adoption of shelter dogs. They are seen walking up to a hanging canvass and shaking paint out of their furs. (Don’t worry, the paint is just corn syrup and food coloring, the dogs are perfectly fine.)
Needless to say they were quite successful. Hoping to find loving humans and a forever home, these modern artists created 18 unique masterpieces.
Here’s what the online description of the innovative project reads:
‘’The shake of the paint reveals a remarkable exercise of freedom, where each drop of ink bears the stain of prejudice. The combination of different colors in the paintings shows the mixture of breeds, as random and as beautiful as each mongrel dog.’’
