Born:  June 17, 1941, New Haven, Connecticut

In 1989 Peter Erskine created a new Solar Spectrum Environmental Art medium called Secrets of the Sun: Millennial Meditations (S.O.S.). S.O.S. is about the beauty and dangers of Sunlight: the beauty of the rainbow and the horrors of global warming, ozone depletion and mass species extinction. Like the beauty of the rainbow, this new art medium has universal appeal. In addition to permanent installations in five countries, Erskine has exhibited Secrets of the Sun in the ancient Roman Forum, Berlin’s Kongresshalle, and Los Angeles’ historic Union Station. His Solar Rainbow Paintings can be seen in hospitals, railways, libraries, ancient Roman sites, museums, police and fire stations, commercial buildings, environmental centers – and homes, in Europe and North America. Erskine’s Solar Spectrum Environmental Art has received broad coverage in the global media including seven magazine cover stories in four languages, over 150 articles in magazines and newspapers, and six global satellite broadcasts. TV and radio stories featuring Secrets of the Sun have been broadcast in over 150 countries.
