Peter Watts is an award-winning landscape artist. A finalist in the 2021 and 2022 Glover Prize, he captures fleeting moments of light and shade in the dramatic skies across Central Victoria and South Eastern Australia.
In 2022 Peter won the “People’s Choice” award in the Glover Prize in Tasmania
and “Best in Show” at the Camberwell Art Prize Melbourne.
Born in 1963 in Horsham, Victoria, Peter’s paintings are influenced by vivid cloudscapes and landscapes around the Daylesford area, interpreting the wild combinations of shades, movement and time shifts inherent in the high hills. With a distinct perspective on nature’s ferocity and beauty, Peter moves from reality to a subtle abstraction that brings his work to life.
Peter is represented by Art Galleries across Australia and Singapore.
Peter has been part of the arts community for most of his life, with more than 30 years as an award-winning creative director of his design agency, Watts Design.
His design work has been exhibited world-wide including New York, London, the National Gallery of Victoria and the National Gallery of Australia. He has also been a judge for numerous prestigious design competitions worldwide.
