About the Artist - Phil Leith-Tetrault
Phil Leith-Tetrault is a digital artist specializing in landscapes. He was born in Baltimore, Maryland and graduated RIT's New Media Design program in 2007. He has worked for 10 years as a digital designer, and more recently, a digital artist. He currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
Since childhood, he has always been fascinated with arctic nature. His work expresses the feeling of being in locations around the world, such as a fjord in Greenland, the coast of Labrador, and deep in the forests of Finland. He uses organic shapes filled with bright colors to capture the beauty, vastness, and loneliness of the arctic landscapes. Using digital illustration software, he draws organic shapes in the form of houses, mountains, trees, rocks, and flowers before filling these shapes with color. During this process, the landscape begins to suggest physical and emotional feelings associated with its location.
