Biography

Born Mel­bourne, Aus­tralia 1951

Lives and works in Hep­burn Springs


Since the 1970s, Peter 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. Tyndall’s art reflects and dis­rupts his­tor­i­cal per­spec­tives on art. His ongo­ing project (since 2008) is a blog enti­tled bLOGOS/​HA HA, which offers com­men­tary on unfold­ing con­tem­po­rary history.
