Benjamin Lussier is a landscape painter currently based on Monhegan Island, Maine. Lussier discovered his love for painting at an early age through the influence of his father, who provided instruction in the basics of value, color, and composition throughout childhood and adolescence. A native of New England, Lussier draws on his love of rural and natural landscape for his choice of subject matter and is especially inspired by coastal and maritime imagery.
Lussier shows promising talent very early in his career. He has exhibited in numerous nationally juried exhibitions and plein air events. His paintings have been honored with multiple awards from the Salmagundi Club in New York City. Lussier’s work is available through Grenning Gallery in Sag Harbor, New York; Folly Cove Fine Art in Rockport, Massachusetts; Elizabeth Moss Galleries in Falmouth, Maine; and the Lupine Gallery in Monhegan, Maine.
Lussier currently resides on Monhegan Island in Maine year-round.
