Peer Kriesel

Peer Kriesel was born in Berlin in 1979 and works as a designer and artist in Berlin.

Data protection and the evidently growing confusion in society, the constant battling in politics –influenced by wars and lack of solidarity–, the conflict between old values and the new concepts of beauty – all these are topics that artist Peer Kriesel addresses in his work.

The neglect and disappearance of true aesthetics, but also true anti-aesthetics, have interested and inspired the artist for years.

Characteristic pieces of Peer Kriesel’s work are his “Fratzen” (“Grimaces”), “Wimmelbilder” (“Swarm paintings/teeming paintings”) and “Übermalungen” (“Overpaintings”).
