Canadian contemporary artist Peter Triantos specializes in high-end, investment grade fine art produced specifically for residential and corporate spaces. Prolifically creative, he lives and works in Toronto where he has successfully represented himself for over 30 years while further developing his innovative artistic styles. He has forged partnerships with designers, architects and developers, placing his paintings in private collections, model suites, and lobbies across North America and Europe. Due to a growing global demand for Peter Triantos’ Neo-Abstract Expressionist works we have expanded to a fourth downtown Toronto gallery, located in the InterContinental Hotel, to compliment our Yorkville and Annex locations and 3000 ft² showroom/studio.
Peter Triantos creates radiant and harmonious worlds of intelligent colour, explosive energy, and rich emotion. Through his thrown paint technique and gestural brushstrokes Triantos creates impactful large scale works that are bold and beautiful. For his many fans and collectors he offers a euphoric breath of fresh air, he brings dynamic new ways to articulate his core belief: that art can and should be joyful, passionate and intrinsically aesthetic.
Peter Triantos has a diverse and vast body of work; each breathtaking series he creates is a thoughtful departure from the last. The hit ‘Jelly Bean’ series is a visual euphony of energetic positivity. Vibrant tones and oversized brush strokes come together to create lively compositions that are simple yet sophisticated. ‘Splash of Colour II’ confers quite a different mood to Triantos’ earlier, softer ‘Splash of Colour’ series. In this newer collection his dynamic use of strongly saturated colours create a vivid communication; a beautiful expression of movement, passion and vitality. Triantos’ spectacular 'Napa Valley' series is highly sought after and a designer favourite. In this abstract ode to the vineyards of Napa Valley, Triantos’ thrown paint technique reaches new heights, encapsulating the seeming chaos of nature while offering the viewer an appreciation of its ultimate balance. His ‘Winter Paradise’ series exudes luxury; each piece has a distinctly calming beauty of its own.
This summer in Toronto Peter Triantos will stage a follow up to his incredibly successful sell-out New York solo show and charity event ‘Equation’. ‘Equation’ is a collaboration with Jonathan Bingham, a brilliant young conductor, and his orchestra. Triantos will paint live alongside the orchestra and create a spectacular new work in fifteen minutes. Proceeds from the New York show tickets, as well as the auctioned artwork, went to the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Centre at Thomas Jefferson University. We are honoured to have been a part of it and are thankful to everyone who came and brought so much positive energy! Triantos continues to take part in many exciting international projects, including participation in international art fairs: SCOPE New York, SCOPE Basel, and Auckland Art Fair with invitations to Art Monaco, and Agora Contemporary, Miami. We are further pleased to announce that Peter will now be represented in Chelsea, New York by Philippe Guggenheim of HG Contemporary.
A humanitarian who loves to give back, Peter Triantos is honoured to have donated artworks to the Baycrest Brain Project, Brain Matters Charity, Mount Sinai Hospital, and the Gold Medal Plates Olympic Foundation. He is delighted to continue his philanthropy by donating his work to the Camp Oochigeas “Paddle Project” for childhood cancer, for which he chose the renowned ‘Jelly Bean’ design. He has further donated a sensational piece to a “Water for Peace” auction in support of the Rainmaker Enterprise – a Toronto-based organization dedicated to creating solar-powered water infrastructure for safe human consumption and sustainable agriculture in South Sudan.
