After many years, privileged to have seen each Art-piece of Anton Dk, I am still submerged in his Art.
The ‘SPIRITUAL & FANTASY MIND’ of Anton is a marriage in his head. Messages, actually TEACHINGS, are portrayed in patterns, lines and symbols like only a true Spirit of Africa can.
The colours of Africa is his knowledge.
After long hours of sketching & designing, the images gets transferred onto wood panels (sometimes using up to 4) for perfect effect.
Painstaking every line is burned-engraved by a hot iron tool. Not at all easy, because utmost precision is required.
The bold colours of water, fire, earth and sky of AFRICA is then meticulously applied. Finishing the works into ‘DANCES OF COLOR & LINE’.
Dedicated, as all the Artist that I love, this humble, extreme hardworking Artist never boast, always hoping that the next one will be better…..… “That is how Artists grow!”
Anton Dk’s art represents the FRUITS OF LIFE; UNCONDITIONAL- LOVE, HAPPINESS, UNDERSTANDING, PATIENCE, PEACE, JOY, KINDNESS, GENTLENESS, CARING, HONESTY AND SELF-CONTROL.
With his unconditional-love, every man, animal and plant is equal & treated with utmost respect.
An “AFRICAN RENAISSANCE ARTIST”, they call him. Uniting the spirit of Africa with the rest of the World.
Knowledge and the urge to teach, pleading for the understanding of UNCONDITIONAL-LOVE, will give us the pleasure to enjoy the magnificence of his Art.
