Peter Köhler

Born 1971, Stockholm, Sweden

Peter Köhler's paintings are very straightforward. The point of his work is that it is simply what he sees. He presents observed phenomena through a filter of absurd sensibilities not unlike the underground comic books of which he is an admirer. Although the humourous angle in art is one that is oft-taken, Mr. Köhler seeks to infuse his work with keen insight giving it a vigor and freshness that elevates ordinary subjects into phantasmagoria of an entirely different kind; one that reveals the myriad of alternate realities existing beneath things' appearances.
