Each book in this RUN is signed by Dulk and includes a unique custom drawing on the inside cover which may vary from the images shown.
Characters and settings that seem to have come out from a dream, expressed with great attention to detail. Impossible colours with a gloomy touch. Dulk's universe, considered one of the greatest exponents of pop surrealism and urban art in the last decade, has no limits. The Dulk, the most complete retrospective made up to now about this illustrator's work, suggests an artistic journey along his drawings, paintings and sculptures, from those works created with a simple pencil to huge mural paintings that decorate the walls in buildings around the world.
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
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.
