SAN DIEGO, Sept. 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Highly awarded landscape photographer, Peter Lik, is proud to present LIK SAN DIEGO. This latest space from the Australian-born artist is conveniently located in the heart of the city, just minutes from downtown, Mission Beach, and many other San Diego attractions. The doors officially opened on August 30th, and now fans of Peter Lik's fine art photography can ready themselves for a grand opening celebration on Friday, November 7th at the gallery's Fashion Valley Mall location. This contemporary, outdoor shopping center from Simon Property Group caters to a hip, modern crowd and boasts 200 upscale stores and restaurants. Nestled among the pedestrian walkways, Peter Lik's newest and largest-to-date gallery provides a tranquil respite from the clamor as shoppers escape into the vast, serene space filled with landscape photographs from around the world. Peter Lik's profound images range from sweeping canyons of the Southwest to turquoise visions of the Pacific Ocean. LIK SAN DIEGO is the first all-white Lik gallery, which allows the art to truly stand out and engage the viewer. "Allure" and "Last Surf" are two impressively large LIK EPIC pieces that can be found at this brand new location.

BACKGROUND: Peter Lik began capturing the wonders of nature as a young boy in his native Australia and never stopped. In 1984, Lik migrated to the U.S. and discovered his passion for panoramic photography. One of Lik's most notable projects, "Spirit of America," is a 50-state landscape exploration of perilous deserts, ethereal mountain peaks, lush fields and glimmering cityscapes. Over the years, Lik's career has been marked with award wins as a Master Photographer from both the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP) and the Professional Photographers of America (PPA). He has also been awarded fellowships from the British Institute of Professional Photographers (BIPP) and The Royal Photographic Society (RPS). Based in Las Vegas, LIK USA™ has 14 galleries, presidents and celebrities among its collectors, and has sold in excess of $500 million of fine art photography. Lik sold his photograph "One," taken on the banks of the Androscoggin River in New Hampshire, for $1 million, and had his classic images "Ghost" and "Inner Peace" included in an exhibition of Nature's Best Photography in the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History in Washington D.C.
