Dennis Akervik Coelho

Dennis first came into formal exposure to Art in boarding Dennis Akervik Coelhoschool in Connecticut. He had a strict German teacher, who let the students explore with many different mediums. There is more than one factor, but that certainly planted the seed.

He is inspired by artists like Van Gogh, Andy Warhol, Picasso, Monet, Peter Max, Jackson Pollock, and a plethora of others. As a matter of fact, he is commonly referred to as a Van Gogh of his time.

He has had studies in anatomy, physiology, and physiognomy, which played a key role in his chosen profession.

While he works primarily in oils, he also works in acrylics, and watercolors. He has also experimented with other things to paint with as he develops new ideas.
