Peter Wegner is a Nillumbik figurative painter, sculptor, and draughtsman. In 2021, he won the 100th Archibald Prize for his portrait of fellow artist and previous Archibald winner Guy Warren, also in his 100th year.

Peter started the Centenarian Series in 2013 with the first drawing of his Aunty Rita (who reached the age of 104). Since then, he has drawn more than 100 centenarians who were still living lives with mobility, curiosity and purpose. Each drawing was completed from life in an afternoon or morning with little alteration to that first impression – they are moments captured within a time allowed. The exploration of aging, and how we age, is central to this project.
