Peter Wylie was born in Lowestoft 1956 and completed a Foundation there between 1974-75. He then got a BA HONS Fine Art from Canterbury College of Art 1978 and later an MA Fine Art Printmaking from Camberwell College, London 2017.
He has shown across the eastern region and various galleries and institutions throughout the country, and especially in London (The Royal Academy, Whitechapel Gallery, Royal-overseas-League) and in China, France and Cyprus. The North Sea studies paintings are about a journey he often makes several times a year from one seaside town to another. They are also about another journey, so where once he looked out to the horizon and imagined his father somewhere catching fish he now looks out and imagines that across the sea, now almost empty of boats and ships, at the waters end another land begins, and on that shore the waves will be breaking under ever changing skies just as they do here.
