Jan Peter is a lightning artist not only with a brush, but also with his hands. The canvas is his pallet and acrylic paints are favorite, beautiful and fast as life. He uses mixed media with chalk as a base to get the right effect. He paints on canvas, panel or paper, human figures, nature, movements, dancers, theater or sports and sometimes a child's portrait as intensive finger exercise. "I want to convey feelings. I don't paint beautiful things and I know, through experience, that people buy my work because of the warmth it radiates. That is why painting is my passion." Today he is asked for exhibitions in museums in Indonesia. (Bali) The Arma museum 2014, Erasmushuis Jakarta (Indonesia), Xinhua Art Institute
