About this piece
“This image depicts a poacher in full action. The Hunter, (character with the apple head) represents the sin. This character is dedicated to capture all kinds of life forms other than reality riding his dead toucan, previously hunted. Animals, their eggs, their bones are captured in exchange for money illegally obtained.
I am a great enthusiast to nature, as long as the work allows me I try to travel to different places where certain types of animals live in order to observe them in their natural habitat, to know how they move freely, how they interact with the environment. Discovering these places and the people that inhabit them you realize the amount of wildlife that you can no longer find in the place, due to factors like the poaching.” – Dulk
As a child, Antonio Segura Donat (Dulk) helped his father to feed the birds they reared at their home. He loved watching the fledglings and seeing them grow, as well as the fish, dogs, and horses that lived on the property. When he wasn’t out and about, he copied illustrations of exotic animals that he found in his parents’ collection of old enciclopedias. And he took his sketchbook with him everywhere from then on. At the age of eighteen, a close friend persuaded him to tackle the walls of the city and suggested he take the pseudonym of Dulk. He then started a diploma in economics, but dropped out in the first year to study illustration then graphic design at the University of Valencia.
Today, Dulk is an all- purpose artist. Between urban art, drawing, painting, sculpture or advertisment, each médium is a challenge that he takes up with pleasure and determination. He participated in a lot of group shows around the world in cities as Vancouber, Miami, New York, Brussels, Paris or Chicago. Always looking at things from the same innocent viewpoint that he is so fond of – That of a child- the artist create a tragi-comic animal themed works in organic colours. His world is a surrealistic landscape full of imaginary details, rising up in factions against humans. Maybe they are wanting to warn us of Earth’s bleak future following an environmental catastrophe.
