“Fantasy is when you open your eyes ,and also when you close your eyes.” --- PETER PIEK, 2013 China Tour ---Guangzhou

Peter Piek could be completely regarded as a crossover artist. Born in Germany, Peter has received his high-quality education in academy of fine arts and Academy of visual Arts Leipzig. And his has also accumulated astonishing experiences in music, painting, as well as literature in his young age. Since 2001, he is active in many countries such as America, Spain, Switzerland, Poland and Turkey, organizing solo exhibitions and taking part in musical activities. What’s more, he has published music albums--- Cut Out The Dying Stuff, I Paint It On A Wall, Say Hello to Peter Piek, The Reunification Of, as well as books--- Das Malbuch and Die Puppenspieler. And here the word “crossover” undoubtedly reveals the artist’s strong desire to push the limits and to show his own creativity as well as personal style. In his music album, Cut Out The Dying Stuff, he not only colorized his notes, but also created plenty of pictures through his words. His early paintings could be categorized as German Expressionism, because of his bright colors and brushstroke, while his later works were apparently influenced by pop art. But all in all, his paintings were all concerning music, which you can see from his round-shaped paintings.

“Painting could also be regarded as music”; “it saves music from the shackles of time, and let the painter and viewers decide it”; “in musical paintings, time and rhythm is not necessarily sequential”; “there is no time in painting, but similar to a song, musical painting should be weightless, and revolvable. Through the eternal painting, rhythm works in every direction of the painting, which is consistently followed in the round-shaped paintings.” --- Peter Piek
