Michael Peck was born in Melbourne, Australia, and received a BFA from Monash University in 2000.
His artistic practice is concerned with the sensation of disorientation and dislocation. Exploring loss of cultural identity, his work particularly focuses on the effects within minority groups and individuals existing on the fringe who are challenged to assimilate within the larger community.
The scenes in his paintings are quiet. He aims to draw participants in and make them pause. He wishes to emphasize that our dynamic population is overwhelmed by mass-culture composed from the interaction and provide a space for the individual.
His work has been exhibited locally and nominated for several awards.
