Peter Briant
Original watercolor paintings by
Peter P. Briant

Watercolor artist Peter Briant's paintings are reflective of his lifelong love affair with his native New Orleans as well as his extensive travels. His realistic paintings feature architectural and nautical subjects, including lighthouses, boats, and panoramic seascapes. Peter's original art can be seen on this website, and limited edition offset lithographs of his work can be viewed on his print web site.

After studying architecture at Tulane University, Peter Briant received a degree in fine arts from the University of Southern Mississippi.  Although many of his paintings focus on architecture, his work features a wide and varied range of subject matter.

Mr. Briant has developed a following in the southern and northeastern states.  His annual one-man exhibits have become highly successful, with his paintings capturing the special qualities of life that he finds in his travels, in the states as well as in Europe.

Peter Briant has exhibited in New York City's prestigious Salmagundi Club, the New Orleans Museum of Art and the Adirondacks National Museum of American Watercolors.   Some of his work has appeared in Southern Living, Better Homes and Gardens, New York Magazine, Art Business News, and Horizon Magazine.
