The painter Elizabeth Peyton was born in 1965 in Connecticut, United States. She is famous for her portraits with a youthful style with which he captures the human being in a unique and very personal way.
His portraits are created from photographs, from well-known actors, musicians or characters of all kinds, even royalty, until photos of his friends. As an artist, she is attracted by this kind of people, and she represents them with her powerful and sensitive style at the same time.
Elizabeth Peyton reflects with her pictorial style, a kind of human’s thirst for life, the energy of youth and the inner play of emotions and personality.
