Peter Seibt was born in 1935 in Breslau, Switzerland. He has traveled in many different countries under many different circumstances – from living with monks in a Japanese monastery to spending a year and a half with a nomadic tribe in northern Africa. He has been visiting Greece since the late 1950’s, living and working for blocks of time in Mykonos, and became a resident of the Cycladic island of Paros in 1991, where he lives and works today.
Peter Seibt started painting in 1938, when he was three years old. He considers the most formative art instruction the one that he received through his apprenticeship under a number of masters all over the world, outside the academic establishment. In his own turn, he has been a mentor to many young artists through his workshops, part of the activities of the “Nomadic Academy” that he has been a founding member.
His work cuts across the dichotomies of different art media. He is a painter, a sculptor, an installation artist. He experiments endlessly with different techniques, from traditional ones like fresco and lithography to new ones like computer graphics and digital art. For him, the quest is to create art which, as he calls, is “transreal leading from one reality to another.”
Exhibitions of his work have been held in Europe, the United States, and Asia, and his creations are part of many international collections.
