Peter Yuill was born in 1984 in Ottawa, Canada. He graduated from Sheridan College in Toronto, Canada with a BAA in Illustration in 2009. Currently, he lives and works in Hong Kong.
Yuill works in deeply complex geometric abstraction, which represents his exploration of the philosophical and existential desire to understand the meaning of existence through mathematical and geometric purity. His work is a combination of highly technical and complex ink drawing and painting on paper. Yuill’s obsession with doing all the work by hand and being deeply involved in every aspect of making the art speak to the deeply meditative and spiritual connection he has with the process of making each piece.
Yuill’s works are collected by corporate collections including The Wharf, Jones Lang LaSalle Hong Kong and private collectors from New York, Los Angeles, London, Milan and Hong Kong. Among the clients he has collaborated are the Peninsula Hotel, the Parisian and Swire Group. He has also been exhibited around North America and Hong Kong. Recent exhibitions include the massive group exhibition The 14th Factory in Los Angeles, California and his solo exhibition The Absurdity of Meaning in Hong Kong.
