Biography

Born Melbourne, Australia 1951
Lives and works in Hepburn Springs, Victoria, Australia

 

Peter Tyndall is closely associated with Conceptual art. Tyndall’s paintings, drawings and prints engage with recursive relationships between art, language and meaning. He is known for his use of graphic lines, text and comic-style illustration. Beginning his career in the 1970s, the Tyndall’s art reflects and disrupts historical perspectives on art. His ongoing project of the past six years is a blog entitled bLOGOS/HAHA, which offers commentary on unfolding contemporary history through an artistic, conceptual gaze.
