About the Artist

Peter Sedgley b.1930

English Op artist Peter Sedgley studied architecture at Brixton Technical School. He served as an architect’s apprentice before turning to art in the early 1960s. Initially investigating optical and spatial phenomena, Sedgley’s luminous circle paintings developed to incorporate video, light and sound elements. He took part in the Tokyo Biennale in 1966. Sedgley’s work is represented in major public collections, including Tate Modern and the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.
