Born in Leeds, artist Peter Bell now lives in the Yorkshire city of Hull with his
wife and three young children. Working almost exclusively in pastel and acrylic medium's
that lend themselves perfectly to his colourful imagery.
Peter Bell's paintings are about the moment and simple pleasures. Peter Bell's warmth,
humour and wit shine through in the paintings, whilst engaging the viewers with his
natural fluency in subject and composition which is all the more remarkable for someone
without formal training. Peter Bell has always admired the work of artist Beryl Cook.
Like Beryl Cook, Peter Bell's paintings are full of characters inhabiting a world
unique to Peter..
With work in collections across Europe, Australia, Canada, USA, South Africa and
the Far East, and several recent appearances on BBC television, this emerging artists
reputation continues to flourish wherever his work is seen.
