Peter Peri (born 1971) is an artist living and working in London.

Peri was born in London. He studied at Chelsea College of Art, London and graduated from the MA programme in 2003. He made his debut in 2003 at Bloomberg New Contemporaries. His most recent solo show was at Almine Rech Gallery, Paris in May 2011 . He has also shown at Art Now at Tate Britain in April 2007, the Kunsthalle Basel, Switzerland in September 2006 and his work was shown at Tate Britain's "Classified" and the Arts Council Collection's How to Improve the World: 60 Years of British Art at the Hayward Gallery, London.

He is represented by Bortolami Gallery, New York and Almine Rech Gallery, Paris. His work is in major collections such as Tate Collection, Victoria and Albert Museum Collection, Zabludowicz collection, UBS and The Silvie Fleming Collection.

Peri's work has a personal connection to Modernism, his grandfather was Laszlo Péri,(1899–1967), an Hungarian émigré to Britain who was involved in Constructivism before turning later in his life to more figurative Socialist Realist work. His grandfather adopted the name "Peter Peri" also.
