Fine art photographer releases new ‘Hawaiian Impressions’ masterwork
Peter Lik, whose work can be seen in 13 galleries across the United States bearing his name, began capturing the wonders of nature as a young boy in his native Australia and never stopped.
In 1984, Lik migrated to the United States and discovered his passion for panoramic photography.
Earlier this month, LIK USA released fine art photographer Lik’s new masterwork “Hawaiian Impressions,” at the LIK Pau Hana event at his Front Street LIK Lahaina Gallery.
Guests enjoyed an evening of fine art, hors d’oeuvres and cocktails with live music at the LIK Lahaina gallery. The first 100 people in attendance received a copy of one of Peter’s books.
A portion of the proceeds from sales of “Hawaiian Impressions” will go to benefit Friends of Hawaii organization, which for nearly 20 years has helped generate more than $16 million in assistance to not-for-profit organizations that serve Hawaii’s women, children, youth and elderly residents in need.
Another notable project, “Spirit of America,” is a 50-state landscape exploration of perilous deserts, ethereal mountain peaks, lush fields, and glimmering cityscapes, and his love for America and its landscapes led him to become a naturalized citizen in 2013.
In 2011, he jumped into mainstream culture by starring in the NBC-produced television series, “From the Edge with Peter Lik.” The artist’s masterworks “Ghost” and “Inner Peace” are in an exhibition of Nature’s Best Photography at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C., and he counts royalty, presidents and celebrities among his collectors. The numerous awards he has won throughout his career include the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Professional Photographers of America as well as degrees as Master Photographer from both the Australian Institute of Professional Photography and the PPA, and he has garnered fellowships from the British Institute of Professional Photographers, the Royal Photographic Society and the American Society of Photographers.
