Gideon Peterson

Born in Wales in 1971 and studied Sculpture at Wimbledon School of Art working in a variety of materials and techniques. After graduating he worked for various artists including Sir Antony Caro making sculpture for galleries and scenic art companies. In 1997 he returned to Wales to focus on his own work using different types of metal and often incorporating various elements such as glass, stone and wood. Much of his inspiration comes from nature and the Welsh landscape. His Celtic roots and have a heavy influence as well as the material itself.

Public art commissions are now the main body of his work including ‘who goes there’ Sculpture for Caerphilly Castle and ‘King Edward I’ both commissioned by Cadw. He is currently working on a monumental ‘Seahorse’ for the new Fishgaurd and Goodwick Art trails commissioned by Pembrokeshire County Council.
