Peter’s prints demonstrate that he has formed a means of holding these sometimes conflicting artistic elements in a creative tension. They are fresh, immediate and full of expressive color yet the forms are held in a strong structure of drawing. Peter also credits his passion for songwriting for helping to liberate his artwork from preconceived formats and increasing his ability to improvise.
While at the Royal Academy of Arts, Peter created the RA Outreach programme, taking creativity workshops with the artist’s life model into schools nationwide. He ran this programme for twenty years, staged three exhibitions of young people’s work at the Academy and as a result was asked to contribute to executive programmes at the London Business School. There, he helps leaders and managers to understand more about the nature of creativity and the connection between art and business. For the last fifteen years, Peter has been an external consultant at the LBS. He has designed creative learning programmes for companies including Deutsche Bank, A.T.Kearney, Givaudan, M&S, McLaren Automotive, Unilever, Estée Lauder and Jo Malone.
Peter believes in Renaissance thinking and in the power of cross fertilization between subjects, encouraging managers to realize that solutions can occur by employing subjects outside your own skill base.
