Peter Tankey

Peter Tankey’s artworks primarily focus on the still life genre, making meticulously rendered hyper-realistic oil paintings.

His work is comprised largely of non-conventional still life paintings, constructing unusual scenes that suggest a narrative through the juxtaposition of objects.

Shortlisted for several major prizes, his work appears in private, government and corporate collections (nationally and internationally).

Peter has exhibited regularly over the past 20 years.
