This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Kurt Solmssen paints large (50x70) domestic scenes of friends and family. A painterly realist and "intimist", a painter of his surroundings Solmssen's uses bold colors and abstract shapes which both simplify and intensify the scene.

Though Solmssen now lives in the Pacific Northwest he was raised in Philadelphia.  His mother holds a Masters degree in social work and ran her own business, while his father was a lawyer and author.

He did not consider a career in art until after high school. He graduated from the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and names Fairfield Porter and Thomas Eakins as artistic influences. He is represented in galleries on both coasts and has been reviewed by art critics for the New York Times and National Public Radio.

Solmssen lives in Vaughn, Washington with his wife, painter Rebecca Schofield and his two daughters.
