About Azzaro

The theater of high fashion is captured in this imaginative mixed media painting by Canadian artist Peter Hoffer. Part of his couture series, Hoffer features a runway model in the center—this the famed French-Italian fashion house Azzaro which rose to prominence in the 1960’s. The colour palette is striking—blues, pinks, greens, red, cerise, white and black. A shallow plexiglass box is attached to the front of the painting as if to contain a moment in time.

"While we admire the beauty of the work, we are aware of a modern artist asking us to consider the process and the act of creation itself. “Lynn Moore, Art Critic, Montreal Gazette

He holds an MFA. from Concordia University and degrees from the University of Guelph and OCAD University. Hoffer has lived and worked in Toronto, New York City, Paris, Montreal and Berlin. He has exhibited widely at art fairs in Basel, Toronto, New York, Stockholm, London, Milan, Amsterdam and Hong Kong. His paintings are held in many private, corporate and public collections.
