"The year 1986 represents an indelible mark in Dado's life: the discovery of Buffon and his burgeoning passion for the world of natural history. As early as 1749, Buffon wrote in his first volume: "The love of the study of Nature presupposes in the mind two qualities that seem opposed, the grand views of an ardent genius that embraces everything at a glance, and the small attentions of a laborious instinct that attaches itself to a single point". Based on this reflection, Dado's pictorial approaches, which he pursued from then on with exhibitions of "Hommage à Buffon" (1986), "Buffon naturalisé' (1988) and "Cabinet d'histoire naturelle" (1990), never left his aesthetic universe."
