Kaelik Dullaart was born in 1996 in Johannesburg, South Africa. Growing up with photographer parents inspired Dullaart to pursue his own studies in photography at the Market Photo Workshop. His exposure to the medium has been an integral part of how he deals with imagery and composition in his creative process.
Dullaart is currently obsessed with drawings, predominantly working with pen on paper, however continues to explore multiple mediums such as handmade skateboard decks and self-publishes zines. He recently completed a second year program at Artist Proof Studio, printmaking being a new fascination.
His work explores his journey to self-discovery by navigating and expressing his personal experiences through his artistic practice. Kaelik zooms into his interest in human behaviour, which is largely shaped by internal dialogues and prevalent expressions. It is Dullaart’s hope to build connections with his audience, both intellectual and emotional.
