Peter Howson graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 1983.
Throughout his career Peter Howson’s artworks have been celebrated by audiences and critics. Howson’s pictures have a blunt, sure grasp of the misery of the human condition- a clear eyed vision of the ultimate ugliness of human life. The ability to represent the core attributes of society from a raw, often unforgiving perspective has been paramount to Peter’s success. Peter’s personal life and most intimate moments are known to be carefully concealed in each of his artworks. However, during moments of great personal difficulty and adversity, Peter has practiced painting for his salvation and serenity. Therefore, we may find reassurance in the knowledge that while Peter continues to paint and produce his majestic works he can find peace within himself, one canvas at a time.
