Peter King [1928-57] studied at Wimbledon School of Art, graduating in 1950. He was a Henry Moore assistant in the early 50s, where his excellent stone-carving skills were fully utilised when Moore commissioned him to carve the 4th component in the 'Time Life' relief in Bond Street, London.
One-man exhibitions were held at Victor Musgrave's Gallery One, as well as galleries in Paris and Rome. He was also included in exhibitions at Holland Park and Battersea Park. He taught at St. Martin's School of Art, after being recommended by Anthony Caro. Public collections holding sculpture by Peter King include the Arts Council, Contemporary Arts Society and British Council.
He was tragically killed in a motorcycle accident at the age of 29.
