"To celebrate World Oceans Day, June 8, I am very excited to release "Legacy" as a print edition, in collaboration with PangeaSeed Foundation, to support their global ARTivism efforts helping to inspire positive action for our oceans.
In 2018 I had the chance to visit the Hawai'i archipelago for the first time, and I was fortunate to feel incredible sensations being very close to a humpback whale and her calf off the coast of the Big Island. In late 2018, I had my biggest solo exhibition to date in the USA, and I didn't hesitate to incorporate the theme of marine wildlife into the main painting. The painting pays tribute to the title of the show, "Legacy" so working on this piece has been an emotional experience for me personally.
One year later, my friends at PangeaSeed Foundation, invited me back to the islands, this time to Maui to paint for a purpose as part of their Sea Walls: Artists for Oceans program. Maui is one of the best places in the world to experience humpback whales in the wild. We were there during the peak of breeding season, which was the perfect opportunity to translate the original painting into a large-scale public mural.
"Legacy" represents the eternal migration of a humpback mum and her calf traveling to safer waters and places of refuge. These magnificent mammals camouflage themselves between ecosystems they migrate through while trying to escape possible extinction at the hands of man.
- 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 encyclopedias. 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 advertisement, each médium is a challenge that he takes up with pleasure and determination. He has participated in many group shows around the world in cities such as Vancouver, 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 creates tragi-comic animal-themed works in organic colors. His world is a surrealistic landscape full of imaginary details, rising up in factions against humans. Maybe they want to warn us of Earth’s bleak future following an environmental catastrophe.
