About Peter Mcdonald
Peter McDonald was born in Tokyo in 1973 and lives and works in London and Tokyo. McDonald's paintings examine intricate aspects of human behaviour, gradually compiling an endless encyclopedia of images and scenarios. His use of intense colour and universal subject matter describes a realm which balances lucid realism with vivid distortions, filled with references to modern life such as iphones, queueing, fashion shows and cafés. His pictures investigate pictorial space by playfully exploring perspective and form. This heightened sense of reality is a means through which the artist articulates experience and meaning.
