Peter Eastman (born 1 July 1976) is a South African painter, printmaker and jewellery designer. Eastman has developed a distinctive style of monochromatic surfaces holding shallow relief depictions, built up with layers of enamel paint and resin.
Eastman was born in Newcastle-upon-Tyne in the United Kingdom to South African parents. He returned to South Africa at a young age and grew up in Johannesburg and Cape Town, where he is based.
Eastman is best known for a distinctive monochromatic style. Images held in shallow relief depictions remain nearly invisible until the spectator is positioned correctly for light to throw the images into relief, reflecting changing tone and colour. This technique was probably most successfully used in his monumental Horse, 2005.
In 2007, Eastman presented Supernature' at Cape Town gallery whatiftheworld. The naturalistic, rich and startling large-scale series of enamel and acrylic paintings on aluminium sheets, depicted the portraits of various owl species relating to themes of superstition and luck.
In 2010, Eastman exhibited a series of black portraits at Primo Marella gallery in Milan, Italy
Eastman was selected alongside William Kentridge and Marlene Dumas to produce a poster for The 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa. Later that year the work was auctioned at Phillips de Pury in New York.
