A British native, Peter's love of aviation stemmed from literally watching the Battle of Britain as it happened as a boy from his backyard. His father, an RAF pilot he soon followed in his father's footsteps joining himself and briefly flew Spitfires. His love of art and photography called him away from his love of planes and he embarked on what would turn out to be a highly successful career in creative advertising where he would become the head photographer for David Jones throughout the 70's where he won several awards in the advertising industry. Peter moved his career to the sunny shores of Australia where he found the call of painting became his new love and eventually gave his illustrious advertising career in its favour.
Peter's passion and raw talent as an artist and his real life connection to military aviation and the incredible events of World War 2 are clear to see once you see one of his paintings. Painting exclusively commissioned pieces featuring the likes of Australian Prime Minister, Sir John Gorton, Nancy Wake, Chuck Yeager, and first allied pilot to land on European soil after D-day, Tony Gaze he has captured some of the most important moments in world war 2 aviation history.
Peter received the prestigious YADA YADA award for his stunning and powerful painting portraying RAAF pilots flying P-51 Mustangs over Queensland and many of his sold out limited edition prints are highly sorted after on the secondary market.
Peter Randall-Kent sadly past away in 2016 and we will be devoting much of our time to celebrating his incredible body of works.
