Peter Serwan

Peter Serwan was born in 1962 in Mount Gambier, South Australia.


Much of Serwan's work reflects his fascination with the urban environment and our isolation within the suburban context. Drawing inspiration from both his immediate environment and recollections of his childhood, Serwan's works are deeply personal - yet widely relevant - observations:

"For some time now, my immediate environment has been a catalyst for ideas and I allow meanings to emerge in my work based on personal experiences, recollections and chance observations. I'm interested in the dramas and moments we live out and endeavour to show how they can express wider truths about ourselves."
