PETER DOIG

Peter Doig’s representational paintings capture people, landscapes, and architecture, combining moments of daily life with technical and stylistic experimentation. Born in Edinburgh in 1959, Doig spent his childhood between Canada and Trinidad. He moved to London in 1979, where he studied at the Wimbledon School of Art, the St. Martin’s School of Art, and the Chelsea College School of Art. In 1991 he was awarded the Whitechapel Artist Prize, which began his artistic career. In 1994 he was nominated for the Turner Prize, and was included in the 2006 Whitney Biennial. He has been the subject of comprehensive exhibitions at venues including The Tate Britain, London; the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris; the Dallas Museum of Art; and the Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt. Doig lives and works in Trinidad.
