Peter Phillips

Year and place of birth: 1939, Birmingham, United Kingdom Location: Sunshine Coast, Australia

Peter Phillips is one of the founding fathers of British pop art. He became famous for his colourful, collage-like paintings in which he assembled all manner of images from everyday popular culture, often against a background of pure, geometric patterns. His work evolved from simple, symmetrical compositions to complex paintings with an ever increasing number of visual layers. However his motifs stayed the same: slot machines, jukeboxes, cars and engines and images from advertisements and pin-up magazines.
