An Unusual Destiny


Larry Welo has been creating etchings since the early 1970's. A graduate of Luther College in Decorah, Iowa, Welo operated a studio in Minneapolis until moving to Wisconsin, where he currently lives with his family.

A popular Midwestern artist, Larry Welo's etchings cover a broad range of topics. Scenes from small Midwestern towns, spirited cats, images of baseball diamonds or bicyclists, colorful zany portraits titled An Appetite for Art -- all of these subjects are fertile territory for Welo's wit and skill as a printmaker. When viewing his work, always notice the title; his witty perceptions about the world set him apart from many other artists. Welo executes his work in both black and white and in color, with the occasional addition of monoprint or chine colle.
