Writers' Comments

Peter Agrafiotis, Painter
"The light in Peter Agrafiotis' paintings seems to come from another world. Ordinary household objects are transformed by it...become numinous presences, both real and supernatural. [These paintings] are also portraits an interior landscape in the psychological sense. They tell us something about the painter; and also about ourselves. But whatever their psychological overtones, the memories they evoke in us, or the words they convey, these pictures are also remarkable as constructions of color and shape ... Agrafiotis' paintings remain original and beautiful." "Agrafiotis' paintings throttle the imagination. ... the art seduces mercilessly, casting an aura that at first intimidates, then beckons, and ultimately bear-hugs. '...every detail seems to vibrate with meaning.' Indeed, part of the allure of these paintings is psychological distortion." "Peter Agrafiotis' paintings glow, radiate, and occasionally even sing and dance in the light ... his brushwork muscular. Agrafiotis paints like he is digging or sculpting, trying to unearth something of great spiritual concern and desire." "[Agrafiotis' paintings] continue to be beautiful, stunning really. waterfall, Peter Agrafiotis, painter

by Peter Agrafiotis
Peter Agrafiotis dropped out of college at 19 to work as a reporter for a Maine weekly newspaper. While still in his twenties he created his own publication, CLUE, Americas Only Vacation Magazine Thats Sarcastic. His satiric tales earned CLUE a coast-to-coast following, financial success, and the praise of a wide range of authors and comedic storytellers of national repute. The Anthology of Maine Humor called Agrafiotis Maines Least Traditional Humorist. Agrafiotis also is a painter with a dozen solo shows to date in major cities, including New York and Boston. His canvases hang in over 100 public, private, and corporate collections. He has been nominated four times for awards at the American Academy of Arts and Letters. (See website: peteragrafiotis.com.) In this his first novel, This Is Not My Bathing Suit, Agrafiotis distills the experience of these dual careers and his years as a Gulf of Maine sailor, into a sly and comic swipe at the contemporary New York art world, caught off-guard on its summer vacation. © copyright Peter Agrafiotis

Background

Peter Agrafiotis, Painter
Doghenge, three photo composite,© Peter Agrafiotis 2010 Peter Agrafiotis was born in Manchester, NH. He attended college in Massachusetts but left after one year and moved to Southern Maine to work for a weekly newspaper. He eventually owned and ran his own humorous publication, Clue, "America's Only Vacation Magazine That's Sarcastic," which he sold in 1985 to become a full-time artist. Over the years since the seventies when he began building his home and studio near the sea he has perpetually enhanced the edifice with arches, unusual glass, trellises, waterfalls, fountains and unusual stone structures of many kinds. He still writes humorous fiction: in addition to painting and doing landscape architecture he is currently at work on a satiric novel about the art world. Peter Agrafiotis has been nominated four times for awards in painting at the American Academy of Arts and Letters.
