Colin Berry is a Contemporary Realist painter living and working in New Hampshire who has studied both historical and contemporary approaches to Realist painting, its techniques and color theory. With careful observation and an astonishing command of technique, he produces paintings that have a dreamlike, ethereal quality. Berry received undergraduate and graduate degrees in painting from the University of New Hampshire (1985) and Boston University (1987), respectively. During that time, as a scholarship recipient, he attended summer study programs at Yale University and at the Realist Workshop in La Napoule, France. In 1993 he was awarded a Fulbright Grant to study for a year in Italy where he attended the Florence Academy of Art, and studied, among other Italian masterworks, Leonardo's drawings in the collection of the Uffizi. After completing a course in human anatomy at the Zoological Museum in Florence, he produced a personal book on human anatomy. In 1998 he attended a Nelson Shanks painting workshop at the Art Students League in New York. Colin Berry has exhibited on a regional and national level, and has been featured on the cover of American Artist and The Artist’s Magazine; his works are held in many private and corporate collections in the US.
