Peter Colbert

United Kingdom

Peter Colbert’s work moves with ease from the representational to the abstract, often sitting comfortably in between. After a successful 26-year career as a graphic designer, Peter Colbert returned to his childhood love of drawing and painting and has never looked back. His artistic influences include Diebenkorn, Degas, and Rothko – from these artists he has taken the visual language of abstracted landscapes, figurative compositions, and simplicity – and fused these elements into a unique perspective. Peter relishes the challenge of staring at a blank canvas, but his ultimate challenge is to keep himself content in the process of solving the puzzle of every painting. Colbert is a graduate of Humber College and the Ontario College of Art and Design.
