Aleta Welling

“I am primarily a self-taught artist, using oil and acrylic paint as my main medium. I have been featured in galleries, cafes and studios throughout Europe, the Mid-Atlantic area, and Phoenix, Arizona.
I’ve always been drawing and painting, and having spent many of my teen and young adult years in Germany, I was not only inspired by other great painters, sculptors or photographers, but mainly by music in the industrial, electronic, dark wave and gothic genres as well. My subject matter and use of contrasting light and shapes expresses the way I view human nature.
My obsession with dark colors, extremely contrasting shades and masking the characters in my art may explain the comic-like post- apocalyptic theme that occurs in a room full of my paintings.”
