Born in Zimbabwe 1950, Peter sold his first painting at age 12.
He studied and graduated from the University of Cape Town's Michaelis School of Fine Art. Further studies led him into the fields of gemology, jewelery design, copper plate and seal engraving.
Under the registered business of Peter Gray Arts he established a successful business in 1973 trading in the United Kingdom, Zimbabwe and the United States of America. In this period he embarked on an art career, painting portraits and taking on commissions, participating in a number of group exhibitions in and around London. Reviews in The Times, Tatler and some of the foreign magazines gave good publicity and occasional notoriety to his work. He established a successful studio and workshop in Kent, England developing a good rapport with his local and international clients. In 1983 Peter Gray chose to relocate back to Zimbabwe where he opened up a large workshop and foundry producing bronze and silver sculpture. These he sold with his paintings and specially commissioned jewelery and objet d’art in his gallery. Again his international connections grew with art pieces being exported world wide.
Since 1993 Peter Gray appointed agents in the U.K. and the U.S.A. to handle some of the work.
Currently he resides in Cape Town, South Africa with his family.
