THE ART OF PEREGRINE HEATHCOAT!

THE ART OF PEREGRINE HEATHCOAT!

Born in London in 1973, Peregrine Heathcote was raised in both Britain and Dubai. Peregrine graduated from the Florence Academy of Art in 1995. His images of beautiful women stepping off bullet trains and Gatsby-esque characters embarking on vintage aircraft and cruise ships conjure a world of intoxicating glamour and intrigue. 

The paintings blend a cinematic sense of nostalgia with the contemporary world, and create evocative narratives, in which the viewer fabricates stories for the paintings’ characters. 

The merging of 1930’s Hollywood, retro-moderne vehicles and neo-nostalgic fashion poses and costumes all make for a mid-20th century version of the Victorian ‘Steam-punk’ style…updated a few decades for Pre-WWII aesthetics.
