About the author
Peeter Krosmann is a versatile artist, but when he settled in Kaunas, Lithuania, Kaunas took over his work. Perhaps it cannot be otherwise - for an artist with a sensitive nature, the environment around him is important and inspiring.
Although the theme of cityscapes might seem a bit banal, Peeter's paintings are far from it. Perhaps as a newcomer, he was quick to notice the beauty in places that we so often overlook when we see them ourselves. Moreover, unlike most, instead of the Old Town, Peeter chooses to depict the modern face of the city and focuses more on modern buildings. He also discovers unexpected angles. In Peeter's paintings, the city's streets and buildings are drowning in the winter twilight, shining in the darkness of the night, or, on the contrary, illuminated by the sun, they shine in the brightest colours, seemingly out of character with our cityscape. The artist's unique perspective helps us to see our city with new eyes.
The artist is originally from Tartu (Estonia) and currently lives and works in Lithuania. He started his art studies at Konrad Mägi Studio in 1989 and later obtained a bachelor's degree in painting at the University of Tartu. Since 2000 he has been teaching painting, illustration, animation and comic art at the Tartu Art School. He is mainly known as a promoter of the traditional genres of portrait and landscape painting, working extensively from life, a master of lithography and graffiti, a comic artist, and lately he has been discovering new means of expression in painting and drawing abstract compositions.
