Dale Voelker is an American artist based in Los Angeles, where he works mainly with mixed media paintings. His style can be described as a blend of gritty urban art with a more clean-cut idealism, incorporating elements of street art with abstract approaches such as colour blocking and non-representational forms. Each artwork is layered up with different materials, ranging from collage to acrylic paints, and in doing so he achieves a sense of the history of urban environments that surround him. The canvas absorbs different elements to form a narrative in the same way that the city streets hold memories of events.
Dale began his career in abstract art with an education at California State University in Northridge, where he achieved a BA in Art & Design in 1989. Since then, he has been exhibiting paintings in the United States, and also runs his own graphic design business that focuses on the entertainment industry and non-profit organisations.
Dale Voelker’s street art paintings have been hung in shows and collections across the US. He has featured in a number of group exhibitions, including The Other Art Fair in LA and The Art of Planetary Science at the Pasadena Convention Center. He has also had solo exhibitions in California, including the aptly named “Layers” at Anne Bedrick Fine Art in 2021.
