Pittari is an artist who works in painting and digital imaging. His emotive abstract paintings have been exhibited throughout the Eastern United States and are in several corporate collections. His recent series of landscape prints, based on American wilderness paintings of the 1800s, address issues of history and iconography within the broader field of landscape studies. Pittari is a former editor-in-chief of the journal Art Papers and has published exhibition reviews and interviews. He teaches studio courses in drawing, painting, and advanced art making, in addition to historical courses on color and culture and the interrelationship of painting and cinema.
