Known as ‘Pete the Street’ Peter Brown spends his painting life working in the public domain. He paints a great deal across the UK – its cities, landscapes and coastline and in particular London. However, discovering new places has become more and more important and his painting has taken him further afield to India, Vietnam, Havana, USA and across Europe. He rarely paints in the studio preferring to work directly from the subject on site in sometimes the foulest of weathers. He works in charcoal, oil paint and pastel and has received numerous awards at various national exhibitions.
In 2018 he was elected President of the New English Art Club. He is a member of the Royal Society of Portrait Painters, the Royal institute of Oil Painters, the Pastel Society, Bath Society of Artists and an honorary member of the Royal Society of British Artists. He paints for one-man exhibitions each year either in London or Bath and has been showing with Messum’s, London since 2004.
Peter, his wife Lisa and their five children Ollie, Toby, Hattie, Ella and Ned live in Bath.
