PLEU / Peter Leuhof

‘Ik heb lang gezocht naar een uitingsvorm die ik nog niet eerder zag. Om niet te herhalen wat al is. Dus werk ik met ambachtelijke ingrediënten en streef naar een speels lichtspel via 3D. Zo bied ik je een uniek kunstwerk om lang naar te kijken, te voelen, van te genieten en zeker ook: om over te praten met je gasten.
Goede kunst laat je kiezen: het fascineert of stoot af. Beste is als men zegt: ‘o, dat kan ik ook, geef ‘ns een potlood’. Dan weet je dat je echt iets héel speciaals hebt gekocht’.

 

In his early teens he already filled many notebooks at school page after page with drawings of curly motifs in many variations. Just after finishing high school, his parents stimulated him doing a thorough vocational test to look at career options. The advice which supposedly suited his character best was to become a farmer or an artist. Becoming a farmer was not possible, so he therefore applied to the Rietveld Art Academy in Utrecht.

To become admitted he had to bring various artworks while he only made pencil drawings. He decided to quit the process and entered a business school. Just like water is destined to float back to the sea, he uses his creativity as a business consultant and became the owner of an agency for conceptual branding solutions and creative marketing campaigns.

 

Peter has long sought how he was going to apply the remaining resources of his artistic creativity. Inspired by the Zero Movement and the Dutch masters Schoonhoven and Mondriaan he now has found his own unique style: FlakeArt.
