Peter Zokosky is a contemporary artist whose magnificent skill allows him to paint in a variety of styles. A master of versatility, Zokosky’s interests in factual science and pseudo-science alike may seem contradictory at first, however both views weave together beautifully as if in concert.
“Beautiful and odd, or unfamiliar, seem really important to me,” Zokosky states. “I love to have opposite sensibilities coexist. Reality feels that way, and I like when paintings have that too.”

I understand that my paintings can seem quirky. I never set out to make them that way, there not meant to be strange for the sake of being strange, they just deal with things I find fascinating, and I just want to see those things exist in the outer world. – Zokosky
