A collaborative piece between The Dulk and Stephanie Kilgast.
The painting “Fragile” was brought to live from scratch by Kilgast.
The end sculpture is about 35 cm high. Wire, aluminum, paper, Epoxy clay, polymer clay, Thermo plastic, acrylics.
The Dulk‘s words about the original painting:
“FRAGILE’ is taken from a mural painted in Jacó, Costa Rica with @artifyjaco . ” This is probably one of the most special murals I ever painted. It’s based on a true story about a mistreated toucan found in Costa Rica three years ago named “Grecia”. Her story made headlines worldwide after surviving an alleged attack that destroyed most of its upper beak. The toucan received the first 3D print prosthetic beak thanks to a joint effort that included a crowdfunding campaign and the collaboration of companies in Costa Rica and the U.S. Grecia has become a symbol of their fight to get an Animal Welfare Bill approved by the Legislative Assembly. I have the chance to visit her after producing my mural and the experience was very unique.”
