The Art of Monte Dolack
Vision • Myth • Mystery

A native and lifelong resident of Montana, Monte Dolack grew up surrounded by the same sweeping vistas and big sky as artist Charlie Russell. Monte’s love for the diverse landscapes and wildlife of the west are evident in the images he creates and the commissions he undertakes. After studying art at Montana State University and The University of Montana, Monte opened his first design and painting studio in 1974 and began his full time career as an artist. Some of his best known earlier works—wild animals occupying human homes—comprise Dolack’s Invaders Series which explores the myths of the West and how we view our relationship with our environment. A love of art, history and the natural world has shaped the content of his imagery. Blending mythology, nature and elements from our modern civilization, Dolack’s work is often infused with a sense of humor and irony. His original paintings and fine art prints are available via the Monte Dolack Fine Art online gallery. Posters may be purchased at Frame of Mind in Missoula, Montana.
