*1977 Waiblingen – lives in Berlin

In his paintings, Peter Böhnisch usually embeds figurative and depictive elements in a surreal, spatially barely defined world, telling stories that never lead to clear insights. What he seeks to depict is not something that comes from our visual world, but something that lies hidden within us.

Böhnisch experiments with a wide variety of painting media and image carriers. After studying at the State Academy of Fine Arts in Karlsruhe with Anselm Reyle and Andreas Slominski, he initially stuck to drawing, which was then predominantly replaced by canvas painted with tempera, wax crayon, pastel or acrylic colours. Today, wax, sand and wood also find their way into his sometimes relief-like works.
