Based in Bristol, Peter Kettle is an exciting young talent on the rise in the contemporary landscape painting field. In 2014 he was elected as a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts (FRSA) and The Royal Cambrian Academy (RCA), as well as being identified as ‘One to Watch’ by Moneyweek Magazine during the same year.
Peter’s career is focused on the untarnished natural beauty of Britain and the story of Wales. His portfolio includes work of the Port Talbot Steelworks, the North Wales Slate Industry as well as the Taff Railway Trail to the Brecon Beacons.
In 2018, Peter turned his attention towards Patagonia, spending four weeks retracing the steps of the Welsh Settlers Voyage. Whilst in South America, Peter spent time trekking the Andes with a canvas roll strapped to his back to pay homage to Kyffin Williams’ trip to Trevelin fifty years ago.
Peter is rapidly growing into an international artist and earlier this year spent three weeks in Nepal trekking to Everest Basecamp, collecting litter and plastic along the route. These materials will not only inform but will be reworked by Peter into upcoming artwork which will then be displayed during a major touring exhibition in 2020.
