About

Painted en plein air in Montauk, New York. A fishing boat leaves the marina and heads out to sea to find todays catch. The water is a silvery blue, with hints of white, reflecting the overcast sky above. Lussier exaggerates the motion of the water with wide snake-like brushstrokes trailing behind the boat. Seagulls fly above.

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.
