Peter Polaine


Peter Polaine
Peter was born in London and studied at Walthamstow School of Art, and moved to East Anglia in the late sixties.
He has exhibited in several London galleries including the Royal Academy, Mall Galleries, and Bankside Gallery.
In Germany he has a strong following of private collectors of his woodcuts, and they are in permanent collections in America, Australia, Belgium and Malaysia.
“Woodcut Printmaking – With printmaking , I prefer woodcuts as it gives me the opportunity to create strong images. I like to explore the grain of wood and to push the boundaries of woodcut printmaking. I feel that from a dead piece of wood, a new life is made by creating an image out of it.
