The artist Peter Doig

  • One of the most influential figurative painters of the present day.
  • Many international relocations in his childhood and youth shape his pictorial compositions.
  • Combines real experiences with imagination and places of longing in his works.

Peter Doig, born 17.04.1959 in Edinburgh, is a contemporary artist who is one of the most influential figurative painters of the present day. Doig's work is characterised by his skilful way of blurring the boundaries between personal experience and places of desire. He creates figurative art that at the same time has a certain abstract character – familiar figures are lost in undefined, flat landscapes with intense colouring. Doig not only links his own photos and memories with his own imagination, he also refers to various periods of music and art history.

His visual language thrives on playing with different levels of perception by mixing the tangible, what has really happened, with pure imagination in a dream-like way. The colouring also appears dreamlike: rich blues, greens and reds regularly dominate his colouring. Doig was guided by a wide variety of styles during his artistic development. Goya, Courbet, Picasso, Max Beckman, Georg Baselitz, Sigmar Polke and Francesco Clemente are among his many sources of inspiration.

Doig's life, just like his artistic work, is marked by the frequent relocations during his childhood and youth. Born in Edinburgh in 1959, he lived on the Caribbean island of Trinidad from the age of two. Six years later, in 1966, his family moved to Canada and finally to London in 1979. Doig trained in painting at the Wimbledon School of Art in London, studied at St Martin's School of Art in London from 1980 to 1983 and left with a Bachelor's degree.

He eventually moved back to the Caribbean with his own family in 2002. Doig's works have been shown regularly since the 1980s in the Michael Werner Galleries in London and New York and in other renowned exhibition venues. In 2008, a retrospective was dedicated to the then 49-year-old, which was shown at the Tate Gallery in London, the Musee d'Art Moderne in Paris and the Schirn Kunsthalle in Frankfurt. 

Der Künstler Peter Doig

  • Einer der einflussreichsten figurativen Maler der Gegenwart.
  • Viele internationale Umzüge in der Kindheit und Jugend prägen seine Bildkompositionen.
  • Verbindet in seinen Werken reale Erlebnisse mit Imagination und Sehnsuchtsorten.

Peter Doig, geb. 17.04.1959 in Edinburgh, ist ein zeitgenössischer Künstler, der zu den einflussreichsten figurativen Malern der Gegenwart zählt. Doigs Arbeit ist gekennzeichnet von seiner geschickten Art, die Grenzen zwischen persönlich Erlebtem und Sehnsuchtsorten zu verwischen. Er erschafft figurative Kunst, der zugleich ein gewisser abstrakter Charakter innewohnt – vertraute Figuren verlaufen sich in nicht näher definierten, flächigen Landschaften mit intensiver Farbgebung.

Doig verknüpft nicht nur eigene Fotos und Erinnerungen mit der eigenen Vorstellung, er nimmt außerdem Bezug auf verschiedene Abschnitte der Musik- und Kunstgeschichte. Seine Bildsprache lebt vom Spiel mit unterschiedlichen Wahrnehmungsebenen, indem sie das Greifbare, wirklich Geschehene mit reiner Imagination auf eine traumähnliche Weise vermischt. Traumartig erscheint auch die Farbgebung: Satte Blau-, Grün- und Rottöne dominieren regelmäßig sein Kolorit. Doig ließ sich während seiner künstlerischen Entwicklung von verschiedensten Stilrichtungen lenken.

So gehören Goya, Courbet, Picasso, Max Beckman, Georg Baselitz, Sigmar Polke und Francesco Clemente zu seinen facettenreichen Inspirationsquellen. Doigs Leben ist gleichwohl wie sein künstlerisches Schaffen von den häufigen Umzügen in seiner Kindheit und Jugend geprägt. Geboren 1959 in Edinburgh, lebte er ab seinem zweiten Lebensjahr auf der karibischen Insel Trinidad. Sechs Jahre später, 1966, zog seine Familie nach Kanada und 1979 schließlich nach London.

Doig absolvierte an der Wimbledon School of Art in London eine Ausbildung der Malerei, studierte 1980 bis 1983 an der St Martin’s School of Art in London und verließ diese mit einem Bachelor-Abschluss. 2002 zog er mit seiner eigenen Familie schließlich zurück in die Karibik. Doigs Arbeiten werden seit den 1980er-Jahren regelmäßig mitunter in den Michael Werner Galerien in London und New York gezeigt. 2008 wurde dem damals 49-Jährigen eine Retrospektive gewidmet, die in der Tate Gallery in London, im Musee d’Art Moderne in Paris und in der Schirn Kunsthalle in Frankfurt zu sehen war.
