Antonio Segura

Antonio Segura, known in the art world as Dulk, is recognized internationally as one of most important names in Spanish painting today. He derives inspiration for his work from his encounters with the natural world and his travels around the globe—from the Galapagos and Costa Rica to Yellowstone and the Arctic Circle. He has witnessed firsthand both the incredible beauty of these landscapes, as well as the devastating impact of threats on their environments. With a strong conviction to defend ecosystems and vulnerable species, Dulk invites his viewers to look toward nature and wildlife through his work. His paintings present a dream world, full of energy and with a special sensitivity to color, where he uses animals and natural spaces to tell personal, universal, and unique stories.
