The German artist Nils Peters (b.1972), from Hamburg, creates his work with the concept of association and imagination. Painting meets collage, meets material assembly combining street-art elements to create a visual language of its own. He uses fragments of words form meaningful subjects while producing their own aesthetic meaning. Nils Peters assigns surreal absurdities and chaos to create a coherent work of art.
"My work is inspired by the absurd rigid definitions of order, purity and perfection that illuminate the beauty of the opposite." says Nils.
Nils Peters' work has been exhibited in numerous galleries in different countries on different continents (Los Angeles, London, Mumbai, Bloemfontein/South Africa, Milan, Berlin, Cologne, Hamburg, Graz, Bremen, Innsbruck,… etc.), as well as at various art fairs (Brussels, Amsterdam, Karlsruhe, Berlin, Hamburg, Cologne, Innsbruck,…). So far, he has been able to present his work in over 95 exhibitions including 19 solo shows.
Peters lives and works in Hamburg, Germany.
