About

Peter Gilliland

I am a Australian self taught Artist based in Melbourne born in 1983. I am trying to achieve my own distinct style and technique through practice and observation. I like to paint Portraits, figures and fantasy art. To achieve a unique painting I collage several images together, filling in the gaps using my imagination. Small details, smooth paint application and high contrast is very important in my artwork. I like my paintings to really tell a story and have a purpose. Some of my inspiration comes from horror movies, retro sega games, signwriting and my passion for wildlife. I have been painting and drawing for as long as I can remember.

"I don’t know much about Peter but saw one of his works at the Courthouse Gallery a couple of years and was blown away by it. He is a young artist and the work I saw was a beautifully painted portrait of a very conservative looking elderly gentleman in a bowler hat – holding a large pink fish on a beach. He looked slightly perturbed. It was a wonderful work and I am looking forward to seeing more of Peter’s work."
