Stanaway, Peter

Born in 1943, Peter Stanaway grew up and has lived in the Manchester area all his life graduating from university there before embarking on a teaching career in art at a school in Oldham. His strong graphic coloured blocks and striking compositions of figures and townscapes have made his work instantly recognisible and highly collectable. His acrylic & oil on board paintings show evidence of his northern roots and often depict the areas around Oldham.
