As an Anglo Dane born in Portugal,  Peter Gilbert studied in the UK where he gained his BA Honours in Graphic Design at Norwich School of Art and Masters in International Journalism at City University. 

Working mainly with metal in three dimensional form, but also with driftwood and beachstones, his art is focused on upcycling found or discarded objects. 

The result is a diverse range of conceptual, functional and Nature inspired artworks. These provide a testament to how the seemingly old or no longer useful can be revived and reinvented.

Today he lives by the coast, near Sintra, dividing his time between sculpture and copywriting.
