Born in 1959 in Edinburg, Scotland, Peter Doig is a contemporary painter living and working in Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago. He is best known for his dreamlike paintings of lakes, canoes, cabins, forests, and more.

The contemporary painter is one of Britains most important artists. His illustrious career is build upon an extensive body of paintings drenched in an enigmatic aura. Doig’s source material for his paintings is varied, most often drawing inspiration from photographs, films, etchings or personal memories.

In 1962, at the age of three, the Doig family moved to Trinidad, before moving to Canada in 1966. During the late 1970s and early 1980s, the Scottish painter returned to the United Kingdom to complete his MA in London. At the turn of the millennium, Doig established his permanent studio in Trinidad’s capital, where he continues to reside and work in close contact with Britain.

Peter Doig developed a distinctively figurative visual language. His paintings refer most often to personal memories from his childhood in Canada. In an expressive manner, Doig takes on the selected found source material and layers his landscapes formally, and conceptually.
