Nathan Rohlander’s paintings are visual comments that explore our human experience.
The Art Rental and Sales Gallery at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art represents and exhibits a selection of his fine artwork. Globally his commercial work is published and licensed by Art in Motion in Vancouver, Canada.
Acrylic: Still Lifes was the first of several educational books that Rohlander continues to create with Walter Foster Publishing. The Los Angeles Downtown News has featured him in its Artist Spotlight. Esquire and several other magazines have published his artwork, and Coast magazine has featured his work on their cover.
Rohlander’s education includes a MFA in drawing and painting from California State University Long Beach and a BFA in illustration with honors from Art Center College of Design. Early in his career, he worked as a scenic painter on music videos and TV commercials. He also enjoys being an instructor at Laguna College of Art and Design.
As a native Californian, Rohlander’s perception of our world and its cultural diversity is influenced by travels in Europe, Asia, Africa, and South America. Experiencing the world in a tangible way inspires his work. Now he and his wife Amy Runyen, an artist and teacher, live and create in South Pasadena, California.
