Peter Saul is an American painter. Inspired equally by comic books and Surrealists, he become an unrelenting critic of various aspects of American culture. A parodist and an absurdist, he comments mordantly on aspects of contemporary life, ranging from art, to politics, to the current infatuation with the past.
