About the Artist

With major portraits in the finest collections, including the National Portrait Gallery of the Smithsonian Institute, the Steinway Hall historical portrait collection, and the House of Commons of Canada, American born artist Paul Wyse has firmly established himself as one of North America's finest portrait painters.

His list of notable clients includes pop legend Billy Joel, Kennedy Center Award winning conductor and pianist Leon Fleisher, The Archbishop of Canada and Ottawa Seraphim, and star of Mamma Mia and broadway leading lady, Louise Pitre.

His work has appeared in major publications including the BBC, Rolling Stone, and Life Magazine's “Best Photos of 2011”. On television, he was followed on Bravo’s “Star Portraits” series, painting Blue Rodeo Star, Jim Cuddy, and has been featured on Access Hollywood, Fox 5 New York, and WNNY Watertown. Other works have appeared as cover images of the American Liszt Society's Bicentennial Catalogue and the Keyboard Companion, and his career was highlighted in an in-depth documentary from North Country Public Radio.

The recipient of the “Best Portrait Award” in The Portrait Society of Canada's annual competition, he was trained by some of America’s foremost teachers including Everett Raymond Kinstler and Daniel Greene, with a full classical background in drawing and painting from the Atelier de Brésoles, and supplementary courses from the Art Student’s League of New York.

Also a world class pianist, he has appeared in concert in prestigious venues such as Avery Fischer Hall, Alice Tully Hall, and before the Royal Family of Monaco, performing alongside such greats as Michael Tilson-Thomas, Vladimir Feltsman, and Gloria Estefan. Through the lineage of his musical mentors, he carries on a tradition that can be traced through the legendary masters Artur Schnabel and Karl Czerny, which leads directly back to Ludwig Van Beethoven. With this, he joins a rarified list of Artist-Musicians which includes Leonardo Da Vinci, Paul Klee, Wassily Kandinsky and John Singer Sargent.
