peter kohl / austria

Long time ago I had discovered peter kohl’s work on the internet and last I saw originals of him at the art karlsruhe.

He lives in carinthia and on a dirt road through the forest it goes up to the parental farm, which peter manages since the death of his father as a self-supporter and as a hobby on the side. His six duroc pigs are doing great, which you can taste in the salami.

To the astonishment – perhaps also to the horror – of his parents, he studied art and philosophy, and today he works on his political, humorous paintings infront of a spectacular mountain backdrop. peter began with realistic paintings and in the course of time he developed his unmistakable style with animal and phantasy figures, partly crotesque and caricature-like.
