Daniel Zalkus

Daniel Zalkus is an artist-reporter with a primary focus on drawing. Born in Oak Park, Illinois his artistic journey lead him to New York City where he studied at the School of Visual Arts.

The culture and energy of New York, as well as studying under
Jack Potter and John Ruggeri, helped foster his passion for direct observation. In 2012 he was an artist in resident at the Glenfiddich Distillery, Scotland, where he created a series of on-the-spot drawings that document the whisky-making process and surrounding area.

As a 2012 Glenfiddich Artist in Resident Daniel Zalkus lived on the distillery grounds in Dufftown, Scotland and directly drew the workers as they repaired the casks, bottled the spirits and gave tours of the distillery. During that time he created over 70 drawings that became the basis of his first book,
“Charcoal & Whisky”.

The book was produced in full color and is a visual documentation of the whisky-making process.
