Dan Attoe is a painter, sculptor, bullfighter and founder of art group Paintallica. He was born in 1975 and is represented by Peres Projects in LA and Berlin. Attoe was born in Bremerton, Washington in 1975 and moved through Idaho, Wisconsin, Minnesota and Iowa before choosing his current location near Portland, Oregon. Attoe attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison where he first studied psychology, and later art. He earned his first and final bachelor's degree credits at the University of Wisconsin-Marathon County before earning his M.F.A. at the University of Iowa in Iowa City.

Attoe's work often touches on the grittier parts of both rural and urban life colored with a mystical form of existentialism.[citation needed]
