Peter Drake, is an artist who has shown consistently for 30 years and whose work has been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions throughout the US and Europe. His works are included in the collections of The Whitney Museum, The Phoenix Museum of Art, The Museum of Contemporary Art, L.A., The Achenbach Collection and the L.A. County Art Museum among others. Articles and reviews of Peter Drake’s work have appeared in Art in America, Art New England, Flash Art, Interview Magazine, The New York Times, Art & Antiques, Time Out, and ARTnews. Although predominately a painter, Drake recently has expanded his art into video and animation saying, “ In effect I have always thought of my work cinematically, I set the stage and then fill it with props and actors so with video it feels like I’m still painting, just in time and space.”
Peter Drake lives and works in Manhattan.
