Peter Diamond is an illustrator based in Vienna, Austria. He works primarily in editorial illustration with clients in Europe and North America, notable among them The New York Times, The National Post, Plansponsor , Wired UK, and The Progressive. He has exhibited his work in Vienna, New York, Adelaide and Halifax.
Peter teaches at Illuskills and works with Illustria, the burgeoning society of Austrian illustrators, as an international contact person.
Peter's work owes much of its character to the album covers and self-published comics that were his special focus in art school and the early years after graduation, as well as the punk gig posters of his teenage years.
Peter graduated with a BFA from NSCAD University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. He was born in Oxford, England and grew up in Canada. He now lives with his wife Lisa and their son James in Vienna.
