Peter Bainbridge is a multidisciplinary artist with a current focus on printmaking, producing silk-screen prints on handmade French & German cotton rag paper composed of popping colours and shining subjects. His straightforward approach typically pays homage to the simple things in life, including Australian icons and the idea of the ‘underdog’. The colourful characters and their pared-back nature melds poster aesthetics with a minimalist edge that celebrates the timeless fashion secret – less is more.
Bainbridge’s vivid style, clever wit, and bold design have resulted in being chosen to be part of the refurbishment of the Executive, Superior and Deluxe rooms at Sydney's Novotel Hotel at Darling Harbour, Supplying artwork to The Watsons Bay Hotel, in Watsons Bay. Commissions from Le Grand Courtiou Chateau in Vienne France. 3D tri billboards at The Felix Hotel, in Mascot, promoting its penthouse niteclub. An exhibition at Olsen Irwin Gallery in Sydney and he is represented by Angela Tandori Fine Art in Melbourne.
