David Welker

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 over the last two decades 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 comix, and his hand rendered lettering is an uncanny blend of 19th Century sign typography mixed with equal amounts of modern graffiti. His career has followed a path of experimentation and genre jumping taking him from the top of the landscape mural scene to the top of the concert poster scene in just a few years. Welker is now setting his sights on the gallery world as he continues to express all of his varied influences in a unified visual aesthetic which combines his deep appreciation of early 20th Century surrealism with his love of pervasive pop culture.
