Peter Kelly

Peter Kelly was born in 1931 and was educated at the West Ham School of Art and Technology before attending the Central School of Art and Design in London.

In 1982 Peter Kelly was elected a full member of the Royal Society of British Artists. In 1995 Peter became a member of the Small Painting Society and in 2007 he was appointed a member of the New English Art Club.

Kelly’s contemporary paintings demonstrate meticulous austere draughtsmanship. Kelly paints interiors, landscapes and still life always displaying an exquisite mastery of light and shade.

The preference of Kelly for a calm, tonal palette and mastery of contrasted light gives his paintings an aura of quiet contemplative restraint reminiscent of the Dutch and Scandinavian Schools of Art.

Peter Kelly was the recipient of many prizes and awards, most recently the RBA Exhibition 2004 where he won the Most Creative Painting Prize.
