Peter Bonde’s paintings are a continuous series of experiments which the artists has been perfecting for over 30 years, using materials as diverse as doormats, wool, foam, straw, steel wire, gold spray, glass fibre, neon tubes, eggs, fat, coffee, etc. More traditional materials such as oil paint and canvas are also used in his assemblages, collages, paintings, sculptures and installations. Bonde’s art is about the dialogue between spontaneity and consciousness, emotion and intellect, his aesthetic at once expressive and conceptual, his paintings often monumental in size and painted with large, vibrant brushstrokes on top of prints of photographs.

Some of Bonde’s most recent works are painted with his signature colourful, abstract and spontaneous strokes on special ultra-reflective mirror foil, whereby paintings suddenly become constantly changing, incorporating both the space and the viewer inside the painting.

He is also represented at , Germany and in the private collections across the world.

For the eagle-eyed amongst you, you may recall seeing Bonde’s extraordinary work inside The Apartment in Copenhagen, which is when I first became aware of his sensational paintings. As is the case with all good things, his work is even more extraordinarily beautiful in real life. 100% fact.
