Peter Vaillant shares his creative moments between his studios in London and Devon.
Peter has been recognised as an abstract artist phenomenon, obtaining notoriety, through commissions, acquirement and favorably reviewed.
The British art establishment are still resistant to abstract art, but Peter has a modernism, not indistinguishable to his peers, it is intrepid, playful and totally enjoyable to view, with sounding approval from Nigel Hurst CEO of Saatchi Gallery, Turner Prize nominee Ian Davenport and Sir David Hockney being fans of his work.
His unique representation of abstract artwork follows successful waves of innovation and connection to the environment which surrounds the artist. The methodology for investigating form and hue compounds his creative documentation. Repeatedly capturing moments of the subject throughout the year on location within a diary of colour, Peter creates epic varying sized artworks depicting landscape and cityscape vistas.
Confirmation of his international consequence can be attributed with artwork adorning public and private collections. Examples include Liverpool Cathedral which acquired ‘Praise’ and hangs alongside Tracey Emin and Dame Elisabeth Frink. Other notable examples include Peter Vaillant’s BBC commission for Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Pageant and joining Sir David Hockney in showcasing the painting at London and New York galleries.
Peter has an unusual concept in vision and energy, he is striving to add element and expressionism to uncharted work, he himself believes he has only scratched the surface of his full potential and has quoted “If I can attain the remarkable difference, Howard Hodgkin, Gerhard Richter, John Hoyland and Hans Hoffman have given us as a legacy and inheritance in art, I will be truly touched with an overwhelming sense of passion and existence”.
