B. 1943 - 2022
Peter Kingston was a well respected artist. Best known for his visions of Sydney, he was a multi-time Wynne finalist and in 2004, celebrated with a touring survey exhibition titled 'Harbourlights' curated by Manly Regional Gallery. That year, the first of two monographs on the artist was published.
Like his friend and fellow artist Brett Whiteley, Kingston's kinship with Sydney has become part of its cultural identity. The two exhibited together in 2019 as part of the significant exhibition 'Bohemian Harbour: Artists of Lavender Bay' at the Museum of Sydney.
Bustling with character and charm, Kingston's work is held in numerous state collections including the National Gallery of Australia and the Art Gallery of New South Wales, as well as several regional galleries.
