About Peter Linde Busk

Peter Linde Busk paints dark, introspective, semi-abstract portraits of mental states. His works attempt to capture universal emotions such as pride, fear, and defeat, and reference literary or mythical characters such as Hamlet or Don Quixote. Walking the line between abstraction and figuration, Busk incorporates hash marks, doodles, and colorful, kaleidoscopic patterns with fantastical, hybrid beings and ambiguous architectural spaces, revealing the influences of Abstract Expressionism and Art Brut on his practice.

Danish, b. 1973, Copenhagen, Denmark, based in Berlin, Germany
