About

Hard Boiled was painted en plein-air on the street in New York City. The central focus of the painting is a smoke-stack, billowing a large grey cloud from the spout of an orange cylinder up into the air. The foreground is made up of the street, markings of a crosswalk. The horizon is the other side of the street, where a motley of shops are open, illuminated. A Stop-Light beams a glowing red.

A Bachelor or philosophy in Russian Literature and Language, Benjamin Lussier, continues his pursuit of knowledge at Colombia University, where he has already received his Masters degree. Although he has received private instruction in oil painting from his father since 2006, it was only this past year he decided to paint full -time.

Having grown up in North-eastern Connecticut, Benjamin Lussier is drawn to scenes familiar to most plein-air-painters, quiet pastures, rolling clouds, and boats docked along a harbor. These scenes, painted in Lussier’s impasto technique, create a texturally interesting piece that will captivate anyone.

Lussier shows promising talent at a very early age, and has already been awarded for his work from the Salmagundi Club in 2016.
