About Dunco Arts


Dunco Arts

From as early as he could remember, Dunco Arts has always been a highly sensitive individual. Inspired, touched and captivated by almost everything in his immediate surroundings. As a young lad, Dunco vividly remembers having a love and strong fascination for drawing with pencils. He found the instrument to be a humble one and would often use the expression ‘aliveness’ to describe it’s technical and sentimental value. What fascinated him most about pencils was that with single shades of lead, he could create tones and textures so defined and so abstract, an illusion of colour would be formed before him. He became heavily inspired by this notion and spent most of his early years trying to utilise its technical use

At the heart of my work is the mystery of identity - our place in the landscape and how we can connect to one another. The drawings I create invites the viewer to observe the world in which we inhabit and in doing so, question whether we take the time to appreciate what we see around us. My hopes through my art are to transport the viewer into another space which is always there but on reflection, is often missed. Through an accurate representation of 'reality' I aspire to give the viewer a new emotional perspective in which we can appreciate an affinity for everyday situations as we deal exclusively with how people appear, when in reality people are more than what we see.

Although some of the drawings and paintings I make are based upon photographs, videos, stills, etc., the idea is to go beyond the photograph. The photo is used to create a subtler and much more complex focus on the subject depicted - the virtual image becomes the living image, an intensification of the normal. These objects and scenes in my drawings are meticulously detailed to create the illusion of a new reality not seen in in the original photo. The Hyperrealist style focuses much more on its emphasis on detail and the subjects depicted. Hyperreal paintings and sculptures are not strict interpretations of photographs, nor are they literal illustrations of a particular scene or subject. Instead, they utilise additional, often subtle, pictorial elements to create the illusion of a reality which in fact either does not exist or cannot be seen by the human eye. Furthermore, they may incorporate emotional, social, cultural and political thematic elements as an extension of the painted visual illusion; a distinct departure from the older and considerably more literal school of Photorealism.

Precision and thematic variety Dunco Arts faces the world of extreme and advanced self-taught art, especially reproducing with a refined technique. The artist in his works does not exactly follow a main theme, but loves to vary, taking inspiration from daily life, movies or music, anything that can excite him and touch the strings of his soul.
Extreme attention to detail
Dunco Arts uses one of the basic techniques of drawing, pencil on paper. The first emotion that captures those who observe his works is a mixture of amazement, disbelief and admiration. His works impress the viewer for their disarming realism and richness in detail. Dunco's ability to perceive the hundreds of shades leads him to create contrasts that touch the soul of the observer.
Young artist on the rise
Dunco Arts has exhibited in galleries and art fairs internationally. He also runs an Art Based talkshow dubbed Wachoraji Show where he Interviews Various Artists regarding the art techniques they use and so much more.
