Biography from Butler Institute of American Art:
Peter Saari was born in New York City in 1951 and graduated from the graduate school of Yale University School of Art in 1976. He has also studied at the School of Visual Arts in New York and at the Tyler School of Art in Rome.

Peter Saari's goal is to re-invent antiquity. He analyzes the conception of classical wall painting and decoration, and then reconstructs the ancient art in his own way. Saari uses Canvas, Plywood, Acrylic and Plaster to create something that resembles the old, the decayed and mysterious.

Saari sees a relationship between modern art and these objects of antiquity; he has said that, " The art of the past changes our attitude towards it. Every period sees the art through a differently conditioned set of eyes. "

Saari's own fascination with ancient art did not come about from an interest in the mythological subjects of the figures depicted, but rather from what he calls the "abstract".
