      Peter Doig (scottish, b.1959) | Blotter, 1993 | Walker Art gallery, Liverpool | One of the most renowned living figurative painters. Born in Edinburgh, raised in Canada and now based in Trinidad, Doig’s paintings mix the aimless sensibility of a drifter with the faded aesthetic of a 1970s Polaroid snapshot.
