Episode 23: Peter Doig


Peter Doig is one of the most respected figurative painters of our time — and it's his depictions of Canada that have become the most famous and financially successful. Just last November, Doig sold one of his pieces, titled Swamped, for $39 million US, which placed him among the world’s top-selling living artists. He spoke with Tom Power about how growing up in Canada influences his work. Plus, how he was wrongly accused of painting a piece of art that made international headlines.
