About Peter Hoffer

Peter Hoffer

Peter Hoffer (b. Brantford, ON 1965) holds a MFA from Concordia University and degrees from the University of Guelph and the Ontario College of Art. He has lived and worked in Toronto, New York City, Paris and now divides his time between Montreal and Berlin. The surfaces of Hoffer's paintings are often scarified then finished with layers of resin similar to the practice of the 18th and 19th Parisien Salons. His paintings evoke nostalgia for classical, romantic forms and periods.

Hoffer has exhibited widely at art fairs in Basel, Toronto, New York, Stockholm, London, Milan, Amsterdam and Hong Kong. His paintings are held in numerous private, corporate and public collections including the Musée des Beaux Arts, the Musée du Quèbec and the Kitchener-Waterloo Art Gallery.
