Dylan is so very proud and excited to have his artwork represent Run for the Zoo 2018. His passion for animals is reflected in his volunteer work at the BioPark and almost always in his art. Dylan cannot wait for the grand opening of the penguin habitat at the Rio Grande Zoo.
The past few years, Dylan has painted pictures for the Run for the Zoo art contest. This year he painted a beautiful lion in memory of Cosmo, who passed earlier in the year at our Albuquerque zoo. We are so thankful to the New Mexico Biopark Society for acknowledging Dylan’s passion and love for these animals and his willingness to help raise funds to support the new lion habitat.
Dyl is busy painting animals that live in the zoo. For this series, he says he was inspired by Kandinsky’s “Color Study of Squares.” Dyl says this gives him a chance to use many colors all at once. His hope is that someone from our Biopark will love these pieces as much as he does and display them at the zoo.
