Philip Jostrom

Philip Jostrom has been following his passion for painting for many decades. His work as an assistant art director and assistant set decorator on a number of well-known feature films greatly contributed to the development of his signature realism style which is highly reminiscent of the works of the “Old Masters”.

His list of films is quite impressive and includes:
The Godfather II, Network, Badge 373, The Gambler, The Sentinel, 7th (a TV series), Marathon Man, An Unmarried Woman, Next Stop Greenwich Village and The Wiz.

Philip has also taught acting for film at The New School in NYC and worked as a casting director in commercials, theatre and film. In the early 90’s he moved to Sullivan County to build a house and ended up renovating several Delaware River boarding houses. He spent his leisure time playing a variety of roles with the Ritz Theatre Players in Hawley, Pennsylvania.

In 2008 Philip answered the call that so many are experiencing, to care for his ninety-two year old mother. It was during this period that his talent and passion for painting landscapes and animal portraits emerged in full force.
