Peter Doig is one of the most internationally-renowned artists working today. Over a career of nearly three decades, Doig has reinvigorated the medium of painting. His inventive style, sensuous palette and suggestive imagery set him apart from the conceptualism dominating much of contemporary art. A willingness to take up the challenge still posed by the paintings of Gauguin, Matisse, Bonnard and Edward Hopper places him in a long line of great colourists, expressive handlers of paint and creators of richly textured worlds.
