Melinda Hegedus creates art to inspire others to ‘make the connection’

Born and raised in Hungary, Melinda Hegedus’s art is greatly influenced by her country’s folk art and its motifs, incorporating the bright colours and design patterns often seen in traditional Hungarian embroidery into her work. She draws inspiration from Mother Nature as well as femininity, finding stimuli within the Norwegian countryside where she now lives. She creates poignant vegan art, conveying the connection between animals and humans in a visual form.

Tell us about your artworks…

These vegan themed illustrations are basically manifestations of all the thoughts that rush through my head every day, as I come across people consuming other sentient beings. I can’t help but cringe when I see someone with the corpse of recently murdered innocent being on their plates. One of my recent drawings is that of a girl eating chicken wings and it reads: “I am a huge (animal lover) hypocrite”. People may think that I am judging others for choosing to consume meat, but in reality the only person I am judging is my previous, blind self. The truth is that I have a tremendous amount of guilt that I am relieving through my vegan art. Guilt for all those years I was eating animals.

About Vegan Life

Welcome to the August Issue of Vegan Life. The vegan message is continuing to build momentum and our voices are becoming louder. In Vegan View this month we talk to Ed Winters about Surge’s Animal Rights March in London this September and his hopes for animal activism. We also have an inspirational interview with What the Health co-director Kip Andersen. Kip was fantastic to interview — very relaxed, honest and chatty. We spoke to him about his new film and what he has coming up in the future. If you haven’t seen What the Health yet, it is definitely worth putting some time aside to do so. Inside you will find features on pearl farming, the environmental value of electric vehicles and an overview of the vital, but undervalued, vitamin B12. We also have a focus on dog adoption this month. Shocking numbers of dogs are being abandoned at rehoming centres and we explore how adopting a companion can change their life, and yours, for the better. As we enter the last month of the summer, we need to embrace this wonderful season wholeheartedly. In this issue we are showing you how easy it is to make your own vegan ice cream and frozen yoghurt. Your neighbours will have serious food envy when they see you cooling off with our recipe for home-made vegan pistachio ice cream! We also have introduced a new feature this month. We love scrolling through your pictures of the magazine, recipes you have made from Vegan Life and your vegan adventures so we have decided to feature a few of our favourites. Why not try and get your picture published in the next issue?
