Meet Topher Straus, an artist who has created an entirely new medium to capture nature’s grandeur—America’s pristine national parks from coast to coast, and much more. Gifted with an Impressionist’s eye, Straus constructs evocative imagery through color and line while visually traversing his landscapes with a digital “brush’. By working on a grand scale, he takes the viewer into a fresh realm of artistic experience.
Straus has exhibited in galleries, institutions, museums and private collections throughout the U.S. and overseas. In Colorado he is currently featured at the Marriot Luxury Collection’s Hythe Hotel in Vail with eight works on display. The renowned Vail International Gallery handles representation in Vail and the Breckenridge Gallery recently launched a solo exhibition space for his work. Straus boasts 100,000+ followers on Instagram, crossing international boundaries. At the core of his success is the artist’s unbounded interest in others and his heartfelt generosity, expressed through philanthropy to non-profits in the areas of food insecurity, art education, and conservation. Since 2019, he has proudly donated over $75,000 to those in need. For Topher Straus, his artistic passion clearly sustains humanity in more ways than one.
