About David Martsolf

Surreal artist Dave Martsolf was born in 1949 in Kansas, moved to western Pennsylvania in early childhood and at age 12 moved to New Hampshire where he resides today.

Martsolf's father and grandfather were architects and his mother a photographer.

Martsolf attended MIT and later UNH where he earned a degree in Fine Arts.

His early work was influenced by all the great masters and others such as the post-impressionists Miro, Mondrian, Matisse, Kandinsky, Klee, Picasso, and the surrealist Salvador Dali.  Architectural instincts developed due to his close association with architecture in his youth.

Today, Martsolf's style continues to explore his surreal, abstract, organic and architectural drawing styles and design roots, expanding these elemental first inspirations into finished works in many mediums.

"When realism and surrealism collide, you get Dave Martsolf. He has the skills and trained hand to make his paintings graphic and true to life, which he pairs with his theoretical, conceptual imagination. It is not very often that we come across an artist so grounded yet so fanciful, all in the same instance.

Martsolf's work is fresh and original. He takes the everyday and ventures with it into the unknown, a journey that results in his astonishing art. Even some of his most far-fetched pieces posses an aura of sanity and organization, dispelling any notion of the irrational or unconscious typically associated with surrealism."
