Antonio Segura Donat (DULK)
As a child, Antonio Segura Donat
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.
Dulk was born
Dulk was born in Valencia where still living nowadays. Dulk is an all-purpose artist. Between urban art, drawing, painting, sculpture, each medium is a challenge that he takes up with pleasure and determination. His art has evolved in a remarkable way in recent years but its essence has always been the same. His naturalistic worlds show us a tragi-comic and surrealistic themed landscape full of details, sometimes real sometimes fiction but always inviting us to dive on them.
His compositions recreate biological environments involved in antagonistic concepts. With a soft chromatic palette, Antonio creates a oneiric narrative scenario full of characters, which is the first visualization transmits beauty and calm but that will lead us to a deeper meaning in the following observations. The artistic evolution of the work is projected beyond the perfection of the technique and the detail that invite you to get lost or the spaces where you can get carried away. The study has led to subsequent incorporation into a plastic language, endowing creations with the autonomy that allows the viewer to be free in the dialogue with the work and share with it an open story.
