David Welker

( Poughkeepsie, New York 1964 -)


David Welker is a NYC based contemporary visual artist known for his elaborate rock posters, murals and paintings, ranging from fantasy landscapes to urban realism. His work has built a devout following from private collectors and celebrities to indie and pop-rock musical acts. Welker’s illustration style mixes depression era surrealism with a contemporary take on underground comics, and his hand rendered lettering is an uncanny blend of 19th Century sign typography mixed with equal amounts of modern graffiti.
