b. 1986, Toronto, Canada
Working within landscape and interior design projects that include high-caliber collaborations with National Geographic, American Express and Apple, Peter Andrew Lusztyk has cultivated a well-known name in corporate projects, and works as a professor of photography at the University of Toronto. Moving forward in a commercial art gallery setting, Lusztyk’s photography focuses on taking ordinary objects and turning them into new and interesting visual entities. With his currency and stamp series, Peter elevates how the viewer looks at the physicality of currency and postage, and explores how these unlikely, commonplace objects provoke nostalgia and celebrate the history of Canada, simultaneously.
