ABOUT

Peter Homan's art is created from a world of contradictions and experimentation. He was born in Dublin and has spent all his life living in that urban environment, but his art has consistently been influenced by the natural world. He received a Degree in Fine Art in DLAIDT in 2004, but considers himself to be a largely self-taught artist.

Through his career Peter has explored many topics in his art using a wide variety of painting techniques. He used mixed media on canvas to explore the lives of tribal Africans, this lead him to spend time with the Maasai of Kenya in 2006.

Peter was then inspired by Renaissance and Baroque religious iconography to create a new series of paintings 'Saints and Sinners' which took over two years to paint. For this 2009 exhibition he took gay Irish men and women and placed them in scenes reminiscent of paintings by Caravaggio.

Peter has also exhibited his work in numerous group shows and a range of notable galleries in Dublin. He has been commissioned by private collectors, and has completed a number of commercial projects in public buildings. He was invited on two occasions to spend time in Noelle Campbell-Sharpe's artists’ colony at Ballinskelligs, Cill Rialaigh in Co. Kerry, here he created a series of paintings of the coastal landscapes. Cill Rialaigh is also were Peters relationship with #firepainting begin.

‘I am Homan’, is Peter’s latest series of fire paintings which documents his struggle with chronic pain and through imagination of escapism forged these abstract pieces.
