Executive Voice

From Carpenter to an Artist, Peter Triantos Astonishing Journey to Success

Peter learned the importance of doing his own research to figure out where he wanted to go. You have to believe in yourself and remain authentic. There’s no magic potion that will give you the win you are looking for. But with hard work, you can find your voice.

You will work from your heart, to change humanity for the better. “Each person has a time where they fit in. And when they make that decision to pursue a career (some later, some sooner) it’s when you feel is right,” he says.

For Peter, fear is a killer of dreams. It restricts the natural flow of life and keeps you trapped. His goal is to live a fluid life, allowing life to flow like a river. If something comes up that is restrictive, or he doesn’t like, he moves things around to change the flow until he is back on track. With a strong mindset, you can continue to grow. You should constantly check in with yourself so you don’t get caught in a rut.
Even as a man approaching 60, he enjoys learning every day to remain fresh and new in the art world. He’s always looking to do more so he doesn’t get caught in a rut. Facing disbelief in your passion from others can be difficult. You don’t live twice, this is your only life. “Find out what you’re really good at…you know what you truly want,” says Peter.

Peter believes we are all unique in our own way. But one thing that makes him unique is that he left his job as a carpenter and home builder at 47 years old for his passion—to create fine art. With his energetic personality and nonstop work ethic, he created a new life for himself as an artist and went on to run five galleries in Toronto, one of which is his own studio.

The great thing about starting a new business is that it has surpassed any of Peter’s wildest dreams. He has found an outlet to have a voice. But with that voice, comes responsibility. You have to be careful not to put your foot in your mouth by trying to say the “right thing.” Peter is committed to leading with authenticity in everything he does.

As a newcomer in the art world, Peter faced many challenges. To stay on the right path, he had to make sure he was listening to people who weren’t feeding him misleading information.

Peter also plans to open stores in a mall in Yorkville in summer 2021.
