Peter Foesters was born in 1968 in Belgium.
He followed 7 years of art education and graduated in 1992.
With a passion for graphics and painting, he sought his way in modeling recognizable objects in plaster and clay.
In the beginning of the 2000s he modeled and painted movie scenes on canvas.
From 2005 he only works abstractly.
He created his own technique through the use of polystyrene on canvas.
This material brings depth in his work.
The work he makes is quite simple through the use of only straight lines, this makes it tense.
Bright fluo colors in combination with black, that's his trademark.
Depth in combination with straight lines brings a dimension to the work.
That is why he calls it "the straight dimensions".
He combats the fear of falling into reiteration by constantly searching for new techniques.
He has always had a great interest in painters from the 70s and 80s.
Especially the works of Hockney, Warhol, Klein and Basquiat inspire him.
Always keep searching and reinventing yourself: that’s the key!
Always with the words of Salvador Dali in mind:
Have no fear of perfection - you'll never reach it.
