A contemporary artist known for his visual narratives realised through elaborate and intricate pen-and-ink drawings, Adam Dant’s pictorial social commentaries are well-researched and studied, and imbued with wit and humour.
“I have recreated a rhino according one of the first depictions of the beast, being Albrecht Durer’s 1515 woodcut print. Durer based his image on a written description and until the late 18th century his print was considered to be an accurate depiction of a rhino. I think it is poignant to display the animal in such form, according to how it was first depicted by an artist as a rarity, due to our lack of knowledge of and encounters with the rhino, as opposed to it being depicted as a rarity because we’ve killed them all.”
