Last one of the exclusive Flamingo Fawn sold.

Today, the last one of the exclusive limited edition print of the Phoenicopterus cervocephalus (number 3) is sold. The Flamingo Fawn, discovered and introduced to the world less than a year ago, did receive a warm welcome. The first publication of the discovery in Volkskrant magazine initiated an overwhelming response. The original painting was exhibited and sold during the ‘Terra Ultima’ show at gallery Untitled in Rotterdam. Now, the exclusive life size edition of 3 framed prints is sold as well. Rare and shy, this animal can now only be seen in the habitats she has entered this past year.
If you happen to encounter the animal, please send me a photo!

The Flamingo Fawn migrates to Amsterdam.

This Thursday, the Phoenicopterus cervocephalus (number 2 of the exclusive limited edition print) moved to her new habitat in Amsterdam. The new owner received elaborate care and grooming instructions to make sure this delicate creature will be met in all her needs.

Kees Moeliker opens Terra Ultima show.

Last Sunday Kees Moeliker, chief-curator of the Museum of Natural History in Rotterdam and winner of the IG Nobel prize in biology, spoke about remarkable animal behaviour in Gallery Untitled. The exhibited Terra Ultima discoveries by Deleo seemed to meet the approval of his curious scientific mind, always eager to discover new species.

Solo show at gallery Untitled.

From October 1 until December 31, 2015, Deleo will show his Terra Ultima discoveries at gallery Untitled, in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
During the last ten years, Raoul Deleo, discovered and explored an uncharted part of the earth. His findings were added to a still growing collection of illustrations and objects.
All of them bear witness of the discovery of a continent so large, rich and diverse in vegetation and wildlife, that it remains a mystery why it has never been described before. The continent and the collection is called Terra Ultima.
