About the Artist
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 into them. His compositions recreate biological environments involved in antagonistic concepts. With a soft chromatic palette, Dulk creates an oneiric narrative scenario full of characters, which is the first visualization that 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.
In 2002 he began his studies of industrial design at the Universidad Ceu San Pablo in Valencia, where his interest in graphic design was quickly born. After working in different agencies and design studios he decided to make the leap to illustration and create his personal brand.
Hybrid creations, between the artistic and the commercial, that feed on urban art, pop culture, and classic cartoons, to give life to a style of its own, that succeeds in attracting and impacting, sometimes with a feeling of disconcerting familiarity. He has worked for brands such as Audi, Amstel, Porcelanosa, Reebok, and Nestle. His work has been exhibited in cities such as London, Barcelona, Los Angeles, and Singapore.
Emilio Garcia was born in the winter of 1981 near Barcelona, Spain. He has a long career trajectory as a freelance art director and visual artist. Since 1999 he has worked with such well-known international companies like Berlitz Kids, Hitachi, Diesel, Inditex, Metro, Vans, and The North Face among others specializing in motion graphics and multimedia content. His work is published in Taschen Favourite Websites and Web Design Index Books.
Emilio, concerned with the digitalization of our society, saw his culture moving slowly away from the tangible. In reaction to this, he left his multimedia career and embraced the tactile. Drawn to the fascination of plastic, he started a new stage with the Secret Lapo Laboratories, a space for plastic experimentation, where he can give capacity to his artistic restlessness, far away from bits, clicks, databases, and scripts. Out of this desire to make a form with his own hands, the Jumping Brain viral was born. As his first independent project, the Jumping Brain has become an overnight sensation.
Inspiration and creativity can be difficult to describe, it’s an ephemeral flow of consciousness often best left uninterrupted.. unquestioned. Whether it be a sketch, a small figurine, or nature itself - I allow my external influences to organically manifest themselves in my work. Having always been interested in found objects, I’ve naturally been attracted to using recycled cardboard. It’s widely available and very often discarded. The use of cardboard in my work is intended to echo the notions of the impermanence and fragility of nature. The way in which a collector will care for the artwork should be the same in which we all care for the life it represents.
The building material, along with sculpture placement, is equally important as the figures they portray. Whether it be aluminum cans, decommissioned weapons, cardboard, or recycled bottles. My sculptures are all protagonists in this ever-evolving narrative. A satirical epic in which my work aims to touch upon political, social, and environmental issues. I have recently started to use recycled plastic in my work. I'm concerned about the amount of plastic polluting our waters, so I am finding ways to re-purpose this material by working it into my art. My sculptures will continue to question and reflect my views on the environment and the world around us.
