Who is Peter Doig?

Peter Doig is renowned for his visionary paintings, prints and works on paper that transform ordinary moments from life into captivating compositions rich in colour. Doig’s artistic voice has always been distinct thanks to his highly representational and “filmic” style. His practice is in constant conversation with his itinerant lifestyle, moving between places like Trinidad, Canada and Britain, resulting in images with suggestive narratives that are deeply embedded in the artist’s sense of place. 

Doig’s art blends real and imagined elements, portraying both everyday scenes and somewhat fantastical visions with a dream-like quality. His works, encompassing diverse subjects and locations, continue to be thoughtful reflections on the everyday that invite viewers to take a second look and reconsider what we classify as mundane.
