Scottish, b. 1959. Peter Doig was born in Edinburgh, United Kingdom and was raised in Canada after his parents shifted there in 1966. He moved to London for higher studies where he completed his Masters from Chelsea College of Art and Design. Doig is recognized as one of the most representational painters of the era attributing to his paintings characterized by their captivating combination of allegorical depiction and dreamlike quality. He draws inspiration from his personal memories as well as photographs and films, like in Concrete Cabin (1994), where he fantastically depicts a pristine Le Corbusier modernist building against a dense forest, generating in the painting a typical Doig style tension.
