artist bio

Dan Kirchen is a visual artist and life long resident of Milwaukee. He received his Associates Degree in Applied Arts, Commercial Art from the Milwaukee Area Technical College.

After spending several years as a production artist for screen, flexographic and digital print he has returned to his love for creating works of art using a combination of ink and spray paint applied directly on glass.

At the 2011 Beyond the Canvas Exhibit, his first show in many years, the piece he created was awarded 1st Place-Traditional and Best in Show.

When he’s not working on creating more paintings, he can be found serving as builder, artistic embellisher or liaison for the littlefreelibraries.org.

artist statement

The work I do is in reverse and imaged directly applied to the glass. A combination of spray paint and ink gives a semi-photographic appearance with just enough interpretation to make it interesting. The pieces are both technical and creative. A sometimes complex process, the results are unique.
My work is often custom per a client's request.
