Biography

A native son of New England, Peter Poskas III—like many American artists before him—derives inspiration from the charming towns and tranquil landscapes of coastal Maine and Connecticut. Delighting equally in subject matter and technique, the artist fuses personal experience with artistic exploration in his rich canvases. Born in Waterbury, Connecticut, in 1969, Poskas III is an eminent and influential contemporary artist working in the realist tradition. Poskas received his BA from Oberlin College, Oberlin, OH, his BFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and continued his studies in Paris.
