Dulk is a versatile artist. He has a wide range of work—urban art, drawing, painting, sculpture… Each medium is also a challenge for him yet he resolutely undertakes it and sees it as pleasure. His art has evolved over the past few years remarkably, but its essence has remained the same. His naturalistic work illustrates a tragi-comic and surrealistic landscape, the details of his work always draw his audience to dive into his imagination. His composition often uses the soft chromatic palette, its visualization brings forth a sense of beauty and calmness. Dulk loves to display an oneiric narrative through his characters, hopefully, lead us to unveil its deeper meaning through following observations.

Kenz draws his inspiration from the human state of mind, memories, and the tension between consciousness and unconsciousness. He is interested in exploring the concept of nostalgia and innocent childhood memories through the depiction of his own personal objects from early life such as rubber bath ducks and walking push toys. His work focuses on the relationship between humans and objects that have the ability to bring back strong visual memories. This is executed through his signature style of soft tones and artificial color palette coupled with bold, round line work and shapes.
Inspiration and creativity can be difficult to describe, it is 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.
