Dennis Ziemienski


A native San Franciscan, Dennis Ziemienski graduated cum laude from the California College of Arts and Crafts. Interest in representational drawing and painting eventually led him to New York and a successful career in illustration. Ziemienski’s strong and richly colored images borrow much of their inspiration from early 20th century painting and posters.

Ziemienski turned his attention to fine art in 1999. Major influences in his paintings are Maynard Dixon, Frank Brangwyn, Ernest Blumenschein, Edward Hopper, and Maurice Logan—and ironically, like Ziemienski, all were illustrators at some time during their art careers.

Ziemienski’s paintings and illustrations have been in many one-man and group exhibitions and have won numerous awards. He was selected as the official artist of the 2006 Kentucky Derby and Super Bowl XXIX. His work is in the permanent collections of the Bakersfield Museum of Art, the Booth Western Art Museum, the Savoy Automobile Museum, the Tucson Museum of Art, Western Spirit: Scottsdale’s Museum of the West, and the Whitney Western Art Museum at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West.

Dennis Ziemienski is represented by Altamira Fine Art, Jackson, Wyoming, and Scottsdale, Arizona; Blue Rain Gallery, Santa Fe, New Mexico, and Durango, Colorado; FoR Fine Art, Whitefish, Montana; and Mark Sublette Medicine Man Gallery, Tucson, Arizona.
