Painting the Parks

Topher Straus' unconventional landscape paintings highlight the captivating vistas of our national parks



Paintings by Topher Straus

The many vistas of our National Parks are images we know and have seen time and time again. From the mountain peaks in Rocky Mountain National Park to the red rocks of Arches National Park, these views are stunning and familiar. Topher Straus, a Denver-born artist, presents a new view of some of our country's most beloved landscapes.

Straus chose to use the National Park system as a blueprint for his unconventional representational landscapes. Straus highlights popular vistas through spectacular 30” x 60” paintings on metal with the goal of providing a personal and rich experience for the viewer, much like when visiting the parks themselves.

"My style is unconventional, fresh and inspired.
My work is fun, fearless and full of rhythm."  —Artist Topher Straus

 

Straus is a New York-trained fine artist, known for his raw playfulness and imaginative concepts. He describes his work as “… a deconstruction of reality that is layered with radical color combinations and bold texture.” He believes that nature is food for our souls and fuel for our imagination.
