Multi-talented artist Dennis Calaba

Striking a note between Impressionism and Realism, Dennis Calaba’s style is difficult to categorize. His influences range from Homer to Wyeth. Born and raised in the San Fernando Valley, CA., he studied art at Cal State, Northridge and the Art Center of Design, Pasadena. He has been a commercial artist since 1977. Having worked in the entertainment, advertising, and aerospace worlds, it has expanded his talents and interests. He paints portraits, landscapes, seascapes, automotive art, murals, and animal subjects. Dennis chooses whether he will work in oil, watercolor, pastels, acrylic, guache, or pen & ink, depending on what will best suit the subject matter.

His inspiration is found in nature’s bountiful compositions. Underlying in each of his artistic works is a mood that he hopes will be communicated to the viewer. Location is not as paramount to this artist as capturing that “mood”. He believes that a successful work of art invites people to enter, bringing their own feelings into it. Dennis is comfortable working in his studio or outdoors. Both of these methods have advantages that he likes to incorporate in his work. It is this mixture of “capturing the moment” and “creating a mood” that give his art their dynamics.

He has gained wide-spread recognition from many awards in juried art shows, exhibitions and several galleries that range from Carmel Valley to Wrightwood to Lake Hughes. His works also hang in businesses and numerous private collections.
He has a wife and two daughters and resides in the far eastern Antelope Valley, where there are gorgeous sunrises and sunsets visible from his home everyday !
We, at the Graphic Experience are pleased to have his artwork hang here in our gallery. Come see it.
