Dave Weindorf Ternisky

“I read a lot about historical figures, primitive cultures, and ancient symbols. That definitely influences my art. I feel like I'm bringing the past to today in my expressionistic paintings with bold compositions of line work, watercolor, and abstract glyphs.”

Yellow Brick Road, 2017 - Acrylic enamel, stain and watercolor on canvas 40 x 30 in.

American artist, Dave Weindorf was born in 1962 in Indiana and is a self-taught, abstract expressionist painter. Weindorf's artwork reflects his lifelong interest in history, describing it as a desire to know the past that shapes the future. He says he's always been fascinated by Egyptian hieroglyphics and cave drawings. Dave spends most of his time studying art, architecture and his own historical ancestry. Weindorf's work has been exhibited in Verum Ultimum Gallery, Michigan’s Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts and Agora Gallery of New York. Dave has won multiple ArtSlant Showcase awards and selected as one of their Under the Radar artists. He's also had the opportunity to exhibit at the Beurs van Berlage in Amsterdam.
