Jersey City Artist Peter S. Bill Turns Two-Dimensional Shapes into Swirling, Twirling and sometimes Glowing Illusions

Playing in Color Gradations

   By Sally Deering

British artist Peter Bill is a color illusionist and his paintings can be found in homes throughout the U.K., and U.S., and in many instances, the homes of other artists. Using subtle gradations of brilliant color, Bill can turn a color spectrum into spirals, fans – you name it, the shapes are endless, and the images seem to lift off the page like a 3-D movie but without the goofy glasses.

Bill has exhibited locally in several galleries including LITM and Cooper Gallery in Jersey City; HBO’s corporate headquarters and the Puffin Room in Manhattan; and at City Without Walls in Newark. For years, motorists have driven by the 17-foot by 15-foot peace sign he painted in the mural on Observer Highway in Hoboken. His early career work as a graphic artist can be seen in the book “The Collected Writings of Sir William Churchill,” and the three fonts he designed – Starlight, Starlight Display, and Uranus Bold – are still used today.
