About

(Born in 1958, Netherlands) A Dutch artist, illustrator and graphic designer now based in London. His work is characterised by his personal use of colour and humour. Working since 1988, he has developed a unique and diverse style. Recently Peter has started working with old crockery, cutlery and found objects to create his Mannekinos (happy fantasy creatures with a character), illustrating his quirky vision of the world we’re living in.
