Born in London in 1973, Peregrine Heathcote graduated from the Charles H. Cecil Studios, Florence in 1995 and currently lives and works in Oxfordshire and London.
The BBC have recently filmed a documentary on Peregrine’s portrait painting which has been aired worldwide.
His paintings, including commisioned portraits of prominent executives, aristocrats, and socialites, have been exhibited at the Royal Society of Portait Painters, The Royal Academy, and are collected and exhibited all over the world.
Peregrine’s images could depict a dream world—the pure artistic vision of a painter fascinated with the bygone glamour of his parents’ youth and his own childhood spent in Britain and Dubai, but also by the contemporary incarnation of glamour in an international jet-set culture.
Each canvas suggests a story, prompting us to imagine the circumstances around a single crucial scene. Heathcote purposefully leaves such questions open, allowing us room to construct multiple narratives. This weaving in and out of various realities, blending the literal and metaphoric is achieved with great skill, imagination, and ingenuity.
