Dik Müller (b. 1937) is a native of Chicago. He studied at the American Academy of Art (Chicago) 1955-1958 and The School of the Art Institute of Chicago 1988-1992. As a designer, painter, and sculptor his art is concept driven by observing the world we see as well as the one in the subconscious. Dik is fascinated with the similarities and brings to life the thoughts and desires of both realms.

Dik’s emphasis on color – deftly laid down pigments with lush and sophisticated interaction of hues – call to mind the work of the German Expressionist Wassily Kandinsky as well the Abstract Expressionist Adolph Gottlieb while Salvador Dali’s surreal interpretations create a multi-level mind expanding pallet. His 3D work is fueled by Frank Stella who continues to think out-of-the-box while in the box. In the world of sculpture the influence comes from Richard Serra for his minimalism and August Rodin’s ability to portray life.
