Peter Robson is an artist who paints surreal images, often presenting politically-driven events, to provoke questions on the decisions and actions of those in power. He is originally from the north-east of England, but has lived in Shipley, and more recently, Cleckheaton, since 1987. He has always painted, but worked in social and probation services, entering professional art relatively late in life.
Peter has exhibited work during 2015 at the Water Street Gallery, Todmorden, the Fuse Gallery, Bradford, the exhibition space at Bradford Brewery, Westgate, Bradford Playhouse Theatre, and at the Park Lane Centre in Cleckheaton.
His paintings – a critique of war – were featured in the ‘Unobtania’ exhibition, at Bradford Cathedral in May and June 2016, to remember the 100 year anniversary of the Bradford pals and the slaughter of life on the Somme battlefields of WW1.
