All Peter’s work is hand done.

Peter R Hunt was born in Windsor in 1947. Upon leaving Walthamstow School of Art in 1966 he began a long and successful career as a graphic artist in central London. He worked in line, watercolours, inks, guache and airbrush, learning the craft-skills that he uses today in his painting. Leaving the advertising world in 2002 he joined Halcyon Days as a fine artist in their Brook Street studio, designing and hand-drawing finished illustrations for the highly collectable, small enamel boxes they produce. Since 2007 he has been a full-time self employed professional artist working from his studio on the edge of Epping forest. He has illustrated two children’s books by Lorna Uglow. He exhibited at the 2009 Royal Academy of Arts Summer Exhibition and at the 2010 Royal Society of Marine Artists Exhibition at The Mall galleries, SW1.

Working mainly in oils his style is figurative and representational, employing graphic techniques often with hard edges, typographical elements and geometric composition. Series currently being working on include: Icons of 20th Century Popular Culture, sized 24” x 20” with a graphic modern treatment; The Gambler series, at 20” x 16” these are more representational with a surreal treatment; and the closely observed Marine series. Much of his other work deals with loss, loneliness and abandonment – a sense that someone may have just left the room, or is just outside the frame. With subjects closely observed, he often uses symbolism, playing cards or miscellaneous items to suggest narrative, creating an atmospheric sense of mystery or a story not fully told.

Influences include Albrecht Dürer; The Aesthetic Movement; The Pre-Raphaelites; Aubrey Beardsley  and Maxfield Parrish.
