Peter Fiore grew up in New Jersey and studied at Pratt and the Art Students League. He has recently been featured as an "Artist to Watch" in Fine Art Connoisseur Magazine along with being featured in American Artist and The Artist's Magazine. He won first place for his landscape painting in The Artist's Magazine's 2007 Annual Competition as well as being a finalist in the Art Renewal Center's Annual Competition. John O'Hern, of American Art Collector, likens Peter to a Bodhisattva, "one who works for the enlightenment of all sentient beings." Mr. O'Hern goes on to say "the best artists are those who tune into the vastness of creation, find beauty in unexpected places, and present it through their skill to impact even the most jaded viewer." Fiore teaches at the School of Visual Arts, in NYC. His work is represented by the Travis Gallery, in New Hope, PA; Brazier Fine Art, in Richmond, VA; Kerygma Gallery, in Ridgewood, NJ; Cavalier Galleries, in Greenwich, CT; and The Banks Gallery, in New London, NH.
