Peter Drew

“I like to exhibit my art on the street because public space is a great equaliser, and an ancient forum. When you address the public through the street you’re entering into a tradition that emphasises our fundamental freedom of expression, over the value of property… I enjoy examining our collective identities and my aim is always to emphasise the connections that bind us, rather than the fractures that divide us.”

Peter Drew was born in 1983 in Adelaide. He holds a Masters Degree from the Glasgow School of Art. His artworks have been exhibited at major arts institutions around Australia, though his most prominent work is installed on city streets. He is best known for his ‘Aussie’ poster series featuring the folk hero Monga Khan.
