Peter Mcquillan | ArtGallery.co.uk
Chelsea School of Art - University of Greenwich
Born London 1967 Peter grew up on the move, around the UK, Europe and India. Experiences which instilled a love of travel, adventure, music, and ... painting and drawing. The idea with making art is to step outside the maelstrom of modern life, to look calmly at the world, to be curious, to have fun and to work with a sense of play. After an Art foundation he went on to take Masters degrees in Landscape Architecture and Urban design at the Universities of Greenwich and Westminster. Works are inspired by the exotic and ordinary. Often paintings illustrate excerpts from a larger unrevealed narrative … or else are done at the site, seeking to capture something of the essence of a time and place. He lives in London.
