SIX DECADES OF PETER PHILLIPS
Peter Phillips, born in Birmingham England in 1939, is one of the preeminent British Pop Artists of our time. His work ranges from oils on canvas to multi-media compositions and collages. Vibrant in color and filled with borrowed iconography of images drawn from daily life, Peter’s work appeals to the spectator’s memory, elevates curiosity and awakens their minds to the world around them.
As one of the originators of Pop Art, Peter got his start at the Royal College of Arts with his fellow students David Hockney, Allen Jones, Brett Whitely, R.B. Kitaj and others of the British Pop Art Movement. When he was awarded a Harkness Fellowship he moved to New York, where he exhibited his work alongside his American counterparts Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein and James Rosenquist.
Peter’s work has been exhibited in countless museums worldwide, featured in BBC films and documentaries, visited by the Queen, commissioned for the World Cup and listed in countless history books globally. Having created over a thousand pieces of art Peter is considered one of the most prolific artists of his time.
