If Jackson Pollock were a rhino

What creative genius lies behind these eyes? More than just beauty, Doppsee’s got artistic flair!

Doppsee, resident black rhino and hopeful future mom at Potter Park Zoo, has graciously lent her artistic genius toward Fight for Rhinos Art Auction.

“In the Mood for Blue” by Doppsee

Don’t miss your chance to own one of these gorgeous originals from the up and coming artist! Auction begins Aug 28th! All proceeds benefit canine APUs.

About the Artist: Doppsee is a ten-year old striking black rhino. Rather sweet-tempered (as far as black rhinos go), when she is not creating art, her interests include dining, mudbaths, and unabashedly seeking out attention from her caregivers.

Dops’ latest hobby involves her love interest, Phinneas. Her new neighbor just moved in from Texas, and they’ve taken quite the liking to one another. The next project for this talented lady? With any luck-motherhood!

Perspective

Mark middleton perspective

Mark Middleton’s “Perspective”

Perspective 1 artprize

Perspective 2 artprize

About the art: The rhino in the zebra’s eye demonstrates the beauty and need to preserve this highly threatened species due to poaching. The stripes of the zebra represent the black and white rhino species.  The rusted corrugated tin represents poverty in Africa, which drives the madness of poaching. My hope is that people observe the piece and are intrigued and feel compelled to explore the meaning behind “Perspective.”

This stunningly detailed work of art was created in acrylic by South African born Mark Middleton. It placed in the top 5 ArtPrize competition of 2014.
