"Homage to Fred" pop-up piano by Scott Glaser
Piano make: Schuman Upright

Scott Glaser was born in Newark, New Jersey in 1953. His love of art started in sixth grade when he was awarded his first "commission" -- creating a mural for the end-of-year class play.

Within the last five years, Scott has been commissioned by major corporations and private collectors. Corporate clients include: Hyatt Hotels; China Merchants Bank; Kate Spade; Fisher Development and Perkins Eastman Architecture and Interior Design. Private commissions include collectors from New York, Palm Beach and Boston.

Glaser's paintings convey the strong influences from favorite photorealist, Pop and abstract expressionist painters the likes of Johns; Bechtle; deKooning and Estes. He is now focusing on the school of photorealism and incorporating elements of trompe l'oeil into his portraits, similar in style and concept to the HOMAGE TO FRED piano painting, whereby people are literally "placed" in their environments. Scott lives in Westport, Connecticut with his wife Cheryl, and his five dogs: Zsa Zsa; Lambchop; Buttercup; Jake and Maxxx.

Artist's Inspiration for the piano:
"The first day I walked into the warehouse and was led to my piano I had no idea what I was going to create - then I saw Fred, the piano tuner, and watched as this incredible artist, surrounded by keys, hammers, foot pedals, cables and thousands of intricate widgets and thingamabob; calmly, methodically and miraculously repaired and replaced all those pieces and made 88 pianos sing. I decided then, rather than simply decorate my piano, I would pay tribute to this talented man."

Check out this recent interview Scott did with NBC New York about his piano!
