John Pusateri

Born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, John Pusateri studied fine arts at Syracuse University where he received his BFA (summa cum laude) in printmaking, 2001. While in Syracuse, Pusateri became involved in a series of projects and art workshops that took place in New York Correctional Facilities.

In 2004, Pusateri moved to New Zealand to undertake a Master of Fine Arts degree at the Elam School of Fine Arts, University of Auckland. In New Zealand, Pusateri developed a strong appreciation for the country’s culture and ecology, which has had strong influence upon his work.

Pusateri currently teaches in the Department of Architecture at Unitec New Zealand while continuing to make artwork. He has exhibited in numerous exhibitions in the USA, Ireland, Italy, Canada, Costa Rica, England, Japan, and New Zealand. He has won various awards and his work is represented in numerous private and public collections. Pusateriʼs work is represented by Seed Gallery in Auckland.
