Biography from Altamira Fine Art:
Mark Rohrig

b. 1955
Native American Surrealist

Mark Rohrig is a surrealist/realist painter who is inspired by the mystical nobility of the Native American culture.  Born in 1955 in Grand Junction, Colorado, Mark Rohrig showed talent at an early age.  He is self-taught except for some tutoring from a middle school teacher and a few classes at Mesa State College.

Rohrig’s artwork is a reflection of life experience and perseverance that forges a common bond between him and Native Americans.  He has been creating his signature images of Native Americans since 1975, and he continues to be inspired by the nobility of their spirit.  Even so, the artist does not consider himself to be an authority on Native Americans as he notes, “I don’t paint specific Indians – I’m not trying to copy history. I’m just using history for inspiration and as a point of departure.”

His paintings are vibrant and spiritual, depicting landscapes with multiple braves to stark portraits of weary warriors.  His work contrasts multi-textured backgrounds with a stalwart figure that embodies nobility and spiritual values.  The attention to detail in his art serves to focus the viewer’s attention. His research on beadwork, artifacts, and other elements depicted results in an intensity of authenticity on the canvas.

Building his paints up from gray tones and working without photos, Rohrig has become increasingly interested in greater detail and softer colors. His subject matter has also expanded from braves and warriors to include Indian women and children as well as mountain men.  He states, “I’m beginning to show people in relationship to each other, such as the mountain men and Indians or the Indian family. I’m including more activities in my canvases.”

Rohrig’s work is featured in such diverse private collections throughout the world as Kevin Costner’s, Mariah Carey’s, and Cher’s.



Biography from Mountain Trails Gallery:
Born in 1955 in Grand Junction, Colorado, Mark Rohrig showed talent at an early age.  He is a surrealist/realist painter who is inspired by the mystical nobility of the Native American culture.  Rohrig is self-taught except for some tutoring from a middle school teacher, Frances West, and a handful of classes at Mesa State College.

Rohrig's artwork is a reflection of life experience and perseverance that forges a common bond between him and Native Americans.  Since 1975 he has been creating these images and continues to be inspired by the Native American spirit.

He intends his paintings to be vibrant and spiritual, from the vast landscapes with multiple braves, to stark portraits of weary warriors, and multi-textured backgrounds with a stalwart figure that embodies spiritual values.

Building his paints up from gray tones and working without photos, he is very private about his work, allowing only close friends into his studio.  Frank Howell was an influence and mentor, he and Howell forged a friendship over 30 years ago.

Rohrig is featured in publications including “Focus on Santa Fe,” Spring 2005, and Southwest Art, October 1986.
