Pietro Psaier remains as enigmatic in death as he did in life. He had an acute sense of darkness and tragedy and many of his works reflect this.
Psaier's self portrait, painted whilst still an adolescent, shows himself at the age of 13 distorted and weeping.
Psaier's subjects were and are themselves complex and charasmatic figures of their time. They include: Marilyn Monroe, Mick Jagger, David Bowie, Freddie Mercury, Oscar Wilde, Jackie Onassis, The Clash, James Joyce, the Beatles, Francis Bacon, depictions of Christ and even Royalty.

PSI Films is in pre-production of a biopic/documentary/film about the life and work of Pietro Psaier - an enigmatic but highly talented artist of the 60's Pop Art movement. Psaier worked with Andy Warhol in what was known as The Factory in New York.
When Pietro Psaier's home in Sri Lanka was swept away in the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami no trace was found of the man but the vibrancy of his work lives on. This has lead to worldwide recogniton of an artist who once remained in the background whilst others with an acute sense of commercialism took the stage.
