“The mind loves the unknown. It loves images whose meaning is unknown, since the meaning of the mind itself is unknown.”
- Rene Magritte
As a child and in his teens, Peter mainly drew and painted with (colored) pencil, ink, ecoline, watercolor and gouache. During his training at NIMETO a whole range of techniques and materials where he was taught in were added. Among other things, decorative techniques such as wood and marble imitation and advertising painter, making decorations and working with a paint sprayer.
During his career as a decorator at HYPSOS, there was a full appeal to his creativity to come up with solutions for the production of sets and decor pieces /props. Airbrushes, spray paint ,markers, ink, etc. You can hardly imagine whether it was used. In addition to 2D, a lot of 3D work was also requested. Statues were made of, for example, wood, cardboard and polystyrene. Objects such as props for museums, TV-shows, product launches, products, but also small and precise work such as model building.
During a period Peter also started to work with oil paint, but that was only a small amount in the beginning. Initially he mainly painted with acrylic paint. As he started to paint more, the art became more important and the paintings more complicated, the more he worked with oil paint.
Over time, the paintings made with oil paint and acrylic developed in different directions. The images on the oil paintings became more complex and realistic. While the acrylic paintings represent a more stylized reality.
