brief

Peter Klare is an adventurous painter pushing the boundaries.

He studied painting at the Munich Arts Academy and at the University of California in Los Angeles were he received his MFA in 1998.

His way of painting is a critical method of reinterpreting the common concept of world and to debate its perception.

Building sculptural paintings and large installations he usually sticks to the classical means of painting - oil paint on streched canvas. In doing so his work always keeps the character of a projection while giving volume and shape to thoughts and emotions.
