SOLD: “Sudan” 96x72” Original Painting🦏💙!!
I am so so thrilled that Sudan has found the perfect home🙏🏻 This painting is extremely special to me, as this massive rhino was inspired by Sudan, the last male Northern White Rhino, who sadly died last year at his home at @olpejeta Conservancy in #Kenya 😥💔
💡Fun fact: Sudan got a Tinder profile of his own when Ol Pejeta partnered with the dating app last year in an effort to raise awareness about the subspecies’ struggle for survival.
“I perform well under pressure. I like to eat grass and chill in the mud,” read Sudan’s Tinder listing. “6 ft tall and 5,000lbs if it matters.”
Despite Sudan’s size, the animal was described as an affectionate “gentle giant” by his caretakers.
“Whenever he hears people talking, he loves to come close, because he knows he’s gonna be scratched,” ⠀⠀
🙏🏻 #Rhino populations are on the brink of extinction. If we don’t work to protect them, we will no longer be graced by the presence of these huge, beautiful animals. 🌍 Sudan was of my special Africa Series, which means that I have donated 10% of profits from this piece back to @artelevatedgivingfund ..Please help me to make the world a more colorful place. Together, we can all make a difference! ❤️🦏 If you are interested in one of my Original Africa Paintings, please contact @parkcityfineart (there are just a few left)! #sudantherhino #savetherhinos
