about the artist

life, study and work

• I was born in 1980 in Ljubljana and I currently live and work in Medvode, Slovenia.
• At the age of 21 I started studying painting at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Ljubljana where I learned classic drawing and painting tecniques.
• I dedicated my bachelor’s and master’s degree diplomas to minimalistic gestural paintings under the title Formalised gesture.
• I have worked as a visual art mentor in various courses since 2007.
• I participate in the ongoing project Oba/oboje, which explores painting in a tandem with colleague painter Renata Grmovšek.
• Besides abstraction, I explore painting in different other styles and enjoy making illustrations, various drawings, cartoons, comics and other visual art artifacts.

“Personally, I love good fellowship and unspoiled nature. I work hard to find harmony in myself and express to the world in any way possible.”
-Peter Gaber
