Peer Christensen

For more than 20 years, Peer has employed the classical technique of oil painting. He builds up successive layers of opaque and transparent paint to create a luminosity that has come to define his style. Peer’s subjects include urban and industrial landscapes, still life, and atmospheric night paintings.

The artist was born in Copenhagen, Denmark, moved to Canada in 1959 and has lived in Peterborough since 1985. Christensen is self taught in drawing and watercolour, and studied oil painting at the University of Victoria and privately with Anthony Thorn.
