United Kingdom Born in: 1959 Famous artist

Peter Doig, a Scottish painter, was born in Edinburgh on April 17th, 1959. 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.

Peter Doig was born in Edinburgh. In 1962 he moved with his family to Trinidad, where his father worked with a shipping and trading company, and then in 1966 to Canada. He moved to London to study at the Wimbledon School of Art in 1979-1980, Saint Martin's School of Art (where he became friends with artist Billy Childish), from 1980 to 1983, and Chelsea School of Art, in 1989-1990, where he received an MA. In 1989, the artist held a part-time job as a dresser at the English National Opera with his friend Haydn Cottam.

Doig was invited to return to Trinidad in 2000, to take up an artist's residency with his friend and fellow painter Chris Ofili. In 2002, Doig moved back to the island, where he set up a studio at the Caribbean Contemporary Arts Center near Port of Spain. He also became a professor at the Fine Arts Academy in Düsseldorf, Germany.
