Peter Doig is a Scottish painter. In his work he shows us the close proximity that nature and urban creations inhabit. Through his vision, they share the same colours, the same textures. Peter Doig’s work captures moments of tranquillity, which contrast with uneasy oneiric elements. He uses unusual colour combinations and depicts scenes from unexpected angles, all contributing to give his work a magic realist feel.

In 2007, a painting of Doig's, entitled White Canoe, sold at Sotheby's for $11.3 million, then an auction record for a living European artist. In 2008, a major retrospective of his work (entitled "Peter Doig") was held at Tate Britain (February-May) and the Paris Museum of Modern Art (June-September)and the Schirn Kunsthalle in Frankfurt (October 8-January , 2009)
