Welcome to 2017, where a dog can paint better than you can.
Hunter the Shiba Inu, from Edmonton, Canada, is a dog whose painting skills have put him on the fast track to internet stardom.
Selling for around $50 bucks a pop, the works reflect the infinite possibilities of an uncharted abstraction aesthetic; or, they reflect pretty colours smushed together by a cute dog.
It’s all very subjective.
Posing for photos with a paintbrush held tightly between his teeth, Hunter creates small pieces that can loosely be described as abstract expressionism.
Numerous videos of his practice have been uploaded onto social media where he is slowly but steadily building a following.
Owner Kenny told Mamamia he initially taught Hunter to paint as a way to keep him occupied.
“We make him fetch our slippers, we hide his treats so that he’s gotta sniff them out, we take him to agility courses,” he said.
“Painting was just another activity to try. We were very surprised with the results.”
