Peter Maier's avatar Peter Maier

Maier is considered to be one of the top Realist painters in the world. His work is currently on tour in Europe and in prestigious galleries in the United States. His achievements place him at the top of the Post-Modern art world. Peter Maier has worked isolated from the elitist art world revolutionizing American Realism -- he has gone farther than any other painter in achieving these advances. Maier’s process goes beyond almost anything ever seen in Post-Modern painting of any kind. Working on hi-tech fabricated aluminum panels, utilizing an experimental state-of-the-art waterborne automotive paint Maier has developed a unique technique and layering process that combines industrial paint technology with traditional brushwork. Maier’s multi-layering process produces an illusion of depth, surface, and saturation of color, not at all possible with traditional mediums. According to New York ArtNews critic, Barbara A. MacAdam,“Maier’s paintings appear to be impossibly real.”
