Peter Backhaus in L’EVENTAIL – 04/2022

Peter Backhaus was born in 1947 in Germany. In 1968 he emigrated to Sweden where he studied philosophy, psychology and art. In Gothenburg he became an associate Professor of art and the owner of an art school. He lives and works in Gothenburg and Berlin.

For Backhaus painting means survival, exploring his creativity is a way to keep his mental health. His paintings are internal images. They come from a level beyond time and space, beyond the personal ego, where complete stillness and total chaos coexist. They are like layers in the archetypal landscape which are deep inside of each person, regardless of culture or color.
