Peter Drake

55 Washington Street, Suite 254

Peter Drake is a painter whose work collages bits and pieces of cultural detritus into new narratives. Working in full technicolor or subtractively (sanding away at the surface) in black and white Drake hopes to shed light on strange moments.

With 27 solo shows to date and a recent MTA LIRR public art commission completed Drake says “I think of my work cinematically, I set the stage and then fill it with props and actors.” Drake actively lectures, curates, serves as a Board Member for the Artist’s Fellowship, Inc. and is a jurist for Base Istanbul and the XL Catlin Art Prize. He is the Provost at the New York Academy of Art, a progressive figurative and representational graduate program located in lower Manhattan. Drake is represented by Bernarducci Gallery, New York and Linda Warren Projects, Chicago.
