Oil on Canvas by Dave Martsolf
About Dave Martsolf
I have been drawing and painting for over 40 years, since turning away from studies in architecture at MIT, circa 1967-70, to focus on the Fine Arts. Initially, I was intrigued by surrealism, and applied skills in photorealism to create complex surreal oil canvases with a dark flair. At my website, explore the “My Dream World" collection. In the 1980’s these efforts earned me the Juror’s Prize at the “UNH Revisited” Alumni Show" in 1981, as well as the Sawyer Award for Painting at the 38th Annual New Hampshire Art Association Exhibition at the Currier Gallery of Art in Manchester, NH in 1985. My artistic career was more recently awarded the Grand Prize in the Art List’s worldwide on-line Artist of the Month Contest in 2018, and I became a featured artist at Artsy Shark in 2020.
