From animals created from maps, labels and discarded tickets, to garments carefully crafted from gift wrapping, musical scores and love letters, Peter Clark has the rare ability to turn ordinary printed matter into exquisite works of art with character, beauty and wit. Whether it's at a car boot sale in Chiswick, an antiques fair in Sussex, or further afield to flea markets in France, USA, Japan and India, he travels far and wide to source materials for his next pieces.

Born in Yorkshire in 1944, Peter studied at Manchester College of Art and Design from 1962-1966. Having had a prolific career in design and illustration (notably holding senior positions at Granada Television (London & Manchester) and NBC (Los Angeles)), in addition to freelance commissions for advertising, editorial, TV and publishing throughout the world, in 1999 Peter began creating his first commissioned collages. From then on the demand for his work has snowballed, leading to him becoming a full-time artist with works in private and public collections worldwide. Having enjoyed years of highly successful shows across the world, we are excited to announce that Peter's debut exhibition at Portland Gallery will be held in September 2016.
