She may be a panda, but she's also an artist. This is Yang Yang.

She's a resident at Vienna Zoo and she's luring visitors with her paintings.While Yang Yang's abstract works, which she undertakes using a bamboo paintbrush, are reminiscent of the work of a small child, they're being sold online for a staggering $560 each.

Zookeepers say her style is unique - and impressive, especially compared to other panda artists.

The zoo is hoping to raise funds from Yang Yang's art to produce a picture book about their resident pandas.

Each painting sold comes with a certificate of authenticity to ensure the owner is in possession of genuine panda art. 

Vienna Zoo is luring visitors with a new attraction: a painting panda. 

Yang Yang, an 18-year-old female that gave birth to twins two years ago, has learned to use a brush to paint small pictures. 

One hundred of them are being sold online for $560 each, to raise funds to produce a picture book about the Austrian zoo's pandas.
