Deihl earned his BFA at California College of Arts and Crafts.

Artist Statement:

"A sense of place and time has contributed to my particular artistic outlook. I'm from a small town in the Midwest and grew up in post World War II culture. At the time of my youth, road trips were very popular for American families. Highways were new and gasoline was cheap. My siblings and I loved road trips. Nestled within the ever-changing landscape were the roadside attractions and eateries which were most often unique mom-and-pop-type establishments. Things hadn't become paved over and replaced by franchises and mega-corporations. The character of the country store was more interesting - more charming and frankly, sometimes weird. My imagination was captivated along with my sense of irony, and the impression stayed with me as I began to develop as a painter and as a young man.

To this day, I can spot unusual or out-of-the-way places where other people never notice them. My eye seeks them out and they become artistic opportunities for me. I travel with a camera, but when it comes to making my paintings, I will often change colors, skies, lay-outs and people. My philosophy is that I'm making a work of art, not a duplicate of a photograph. To some degree, I am consciously preserving places which history will no doubt forget, and I am doing my artistic part to resist corporate take-over. But I also have artistic motives which supercede my archival interests. The sites I use are "vehicles" for something I always try to express: a sense of surrealism and that suspended moment of tranquility or of anxiety, depending on the content of the artwork and the choices I've made, but I use place and time artistically as a crossroad to those feelings that transcend specifics."
