Peter McQuillan

Based in United Kingdom
Born London 1967 Peter grew up on the move around Europe and India, which led a fascination with the look, feel and flavour of place, the differences, the similarities. After an art foundation at Chelsea School of Art London, he went on to become a Landscape Architect and urban designer, shaping the designs for all kinds of external spaces: parks and city areas around the world. He continues to travel widely, both with work and in his free time, creating paintings and drawings recording scenes and experiences. Creating art is a means to be free ... outside the maelstrom of modern life, to focus on being creative, to gaze calmly at the world, be curious, to have fun and work with a sense of play. Be intrigued by the essence of place, a spirit or feel and the different qualities place evokes, ... calm, memory, nostalgia, revelation, portent. He seeks to reclaim watercolour painting as a cutting edge, cool and edgy. ... He continues to travel widely, around Europe, India, Russia, Japan, South America. Influences are Russian folk art, Italian and Dutch renaissance painting, Edwardian society portraits, Japanese woodblock prints ... and anything else Japanese. He lives in London.
