ING Discerning Eye Exhibition

“I did not ask” was accepted for this year’s Discerning Eye Exhibition. The exhibition can be found here. My painting is in the selection curated by Beverly Knight.

Peter D’Alessandri is a figurative artist working from a studio in the Medway town Chatham. The representation and description of people is the main focus of his work.

“Friends or relatives, or just people I pay to pose. I am fascinated by the dynamic relationship between subject, artist and viewer.”

He shows his work regularly; nationally and internationally.  His work has been bought by collectors worldwide.

If you are interested in commissioning an artwork, you will find more information and helpful tips on the Commission a Portrait page.

Feel free to contact the artist at dalessandri@gmail.com with any questions, and he will get back to you as soon as possible.


Peter D’Alessandri studied for a BA in Fine Art at the Norwich school of Art in the eighties. After living and working in the “real world” for the next twenty years, he returned tentatively to a life of art in 2005. He now works full time as an artist from a studio in Chatham.
