About Peter Gerakaris

American interdisciplinary artist Peter D. Gerakaris earned a BFA from Cornell University in 2003 and an MFA from Hunter College in 2009 where he received the Tony Smith Prize.

Gerakaris’ kaleidoscopic paintings, installations, and origami sculptures engage nature-culture themes and are showcased in various permanent institutional collections including the National Museum of Wildlife Art (Jackson, WY), the U.S. Department of State Art in Embassies Program in Libreville, Gabon (Africa), the Schomburg Center, the Waskowmium, the Warwick Hotel (Bahamas), and Citibank, in addition to a spectrum of private collections such as Patrick McMullan, William Lim, and Beth Rudin DeWoody.

Having received distinctions such as the National Academy of Art’s Edwin Austin Abbey Fellowship and the Vermont Studio Center’s Clowes Foundation Full-Fellowship, his artwork has been exhibited around the globe at the Bronx Museum, Wave Hill, Daniel Weinberg Gallery, Chinese Contemporary (Beijing), various art fairs such as Scope and the Doors (Seoul), iSolAIR (Cape Verde Islands, West Africa), the National Academy of Fine Arts, and the Mykonos Biennale, while also being featured in publications like Architectural Digest, the Financial Times, and W Magazine.

Additionally, Gerakaris has created a variety of large-scale, site-specific commissions awarded by Cornell Tech, The Surrey Hotel, Bergdorf Goodman, and the Warwick Hotel Paradise Island Permanent Collection (Bahamas). He has also been awarded a large-scale public art commission to be permanently installed at PS101 (Brooklyn) in 2019 through the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs Percent for Art Program.

Artist Statement

The artist's work engages nature-culture themes in a vibrant "Post-Pop Botanic" mode. Gerakaris mediates flora and fauna through a graphic, pop cultural lens while creating a collage-like illusion to express society’s fractured relationship with the environment.
