Doig’s subjects are also central to present-day concerns, reflecting, as they do, the facts of his peripatetic life, both past and present. He continues the tradition of sensual colour, formal assonance and expressive handling that many of the great pioneers of Modernism had championed in the early 20th century. He elides past and present, personal and shared memories, the actual and the imagined, art(ifice) and reality in his paintings.
Peter Doig born 17 April 1959) is a Scottish painter. One of the most renowned living figurative painters, he has settled in Trinidad since 2002. In 2007, his painting White Canoe sold at Sotheby's for $11.3 million, then an auction record for a living European artist. In February 2013, his painting, The Architect's Home in the Ravine, sold for $12 million at a London auction. Art critic Jonathan Jones said about him: "Amid all the nonsense, impostors, rhetorical bullshit and sheer trash that pass for art in the 21st century, Doig is a jewel of genuine imagination, sincere work and humble creativity."
