Who Is Peter Minshall?

Minshall was born in Georgetown, Guyana, on July 16, 1941, but his family relocated to Trinidad when he was a little child after his father accepted a position as a cartoonist. Minshall was up in Port of Spain, the nation’s capital, where he was exposed to Carnival at a young age. Peter made his first outfit when he was just 13 years old. He pursued his education at the Central School of Art and Design in London after completing his studies at Queen’s Royal College, where he concentrated on Theatre Design.

Peter Minshall started making Carnival costumes for different family members and acquaintances of the family even before he finished high school. When a director looked through a portfolio of his Carnival designs, he received his first significant theatrical commission for a performance at Sadler’s Wells. He wrote his thesis on the bat, a typical Carnival character, while he was still in art school.
He has used his imagination to transform many of The Mas characters and storylines into yearly plays. And eventually, his efforts led to a drastic change in the definition of Carnival production. Instead of simply creating a Carnival Band, he produced a show that featured colour, costumes, sculpture, and music. The actors and characters in his story were played by the production’s participants.
