Dale Dreiling is a multi-media artist whose work rebukes the traditional concept of beauty by overlapping existing aesthetic ideals, incorporating both the expected and unexpected.
His body of work demonstrates his capability for realistic technique as well as his sensibility for impressionistic representations of the everyday, strongly occupying the grey space of not-highbrow, nor-lowbrow.
Playing in limbo presents a challenge unique to contemporary art: bringing new perspective to dancing down the middle of the road. Dreiling has an innate sense of when to veer one direction or the other, revealing a mastery of that ever elusive balance: the beauty in inbetweeenness.
Dreiling is a graduate of the San Francisco Art Institute. He is an Art Director for Studio Number One and currently lives in South Pasadena, CA.

"Dale Dreiling takes inspiration from the everyday occurrences in Los Angeles, highlighting icons that are often overlooked, from street vendors and other characters, to liquor stores, swap meets, and catering trucks. Though his paintings bring color and focus to those images that go unnoticed, his subjects are often eerily faceless. Perhaps this is just for the sake of anonymity, or maybe Dreiling is attesting to the idea that we are not as different from others as we think." -Beautiful Decay
