Peter Meikle was born in 1980 in South Africa, and grew up in the Eastern Highlands of Zimbabwe.
A self-taught artist, his early work consisted mainly of pastel and pencil drawings on a wide variety of subjects from portraits to land and sea-scapes, always in a highly detailed, realistic style.
Peter's style and subject matter is particularly inspired by the meticulous precision of the Academic painters of the 19th century, and the American photo-realist painters of the 1960's and '70's, as well as being influenced by painters of urban landscapes such as the 18th century Venetian artist Canaletto. More recent influences have been South African artists such as John Kramer and Keith Alexander.
Peter has recently begun exploring portrait painting - the life size self portrait 'The Stand' being selected for the Top 40 Finalists in the Sanlam Portrait Awards in 2015.
