Traffic Jam by Peter Saul


Traffic Jam by Peter Saul

Peter Saul (b.1934), is a painter and printmaker celebrated for his satirical commentaries on political, social, and historical events in American history. Born in San Francisco, Saul attended the California School of Fine Arts in San Francisco and received a BFA from Washington University in St. Louis.

At 87 years old, Saul continues to make paintings that feel urgent to our time. Throughout his over six-decade career, the artist has addressed critical topics of the day with unbridled courage. Nothing is too sacred to be mocked, including American post-war consumerism, the Vietnam War, the trial of Angela Davis, American politics, Saddam Hussein, and the art world itself.

Works by Peter Saul currently feature in many local and international public collections, such as the prestigious Collection of Museum of Modern Art in New York (USA), of Metropolitan Museum of Art (USA), of Art Institute of Chicago (USA) or of the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris (France).
