Artist biography

Renaldo Kuhler (American, 1931-2013) was a scientific illustrator for the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences for thirty years, illustrating natural history specimens for publications and exhibits. Unbeknownst to family, friends, and co-workers, Kuhler was also a prolific self-taught artist. In 1948 Kuhler invented an imaginary country he called Rocaterrania and secretly illustrated the nation’s history for more than sixty years.

Kuhler’s life and work are the subjects of a documentary film, Rocaterrania (74 minutes, 2009), and a book, The Secret World of Renaldo Kuhler (Blast Books, New York), both by Brett Ingram, director of the Renaldo Kuhler Archive, proprietor and custodian of the Kuhler collection, and administrator of this site.
