The Art of Peter Taylor

Post Image

Peter Taylor is an artist from Vancouver, Canada. His paintings are known for focusing on a single figure whose facial expressions and bodily positions exude a combination of playfulness and meditative contentment. Because of his background in graffiti he is known for working in large scale. By depicting his figures at near-human scale, he encourages his audience to identify and interact, while recognizing at the same time the paradoxical nature of this approach: just as they approach human size, the characters defy proportion and verisimilitude by their at-times bizarre contortions and swollen features.

More of Peter’s playful, meditative, tattooed figures after the jump.
