Peter Kennard was born in London in 1949. Originally trained as a painter at the Slade School of Art and later at the Royal College of Art, Kennard has been a politically involved artist since late 1960s-early 1970s, creating works that engage politically with both the viewer and the environment. An artist-activist since the time of the Vietnam war, he has been recognized by Art in America as "one of the very few artists - the only one it might be said - who has had a direct effect on recent British politics". One of his latest projects is the book "@earth", a story without words of global destruction and resistance told through the language of photomontage.
