Peter Keil Wall Decorations

German, b. 1942

In the beginnings of his artistic career, Peter Keil's style was influenced by German Expressionism. In the paintings from his early Berlin years, he mainly focused on typical big city settings and characters on the fringes of society. However, his style changed visibly at the beginning of the 60s when he lived in Paris for a while and emerged in the city's nightlife.

Keil increasingly parted with his realistic approach and developed a new, much more spontaneous and dynamic painting style which he developed further during his years in London and finally during his time as one of the "Berliner Neue Wilden" at the beginning of the 80s. Since then, the use of intensive to lurid colors and the absence of realistic representation have become characteristic of his painting style.

In Keil's paintings, the color is applied with quick brushstrokes and occasionally with impasto techniques and the images are additionally abstracted by the use of graffiti elements. He prefers to paint human figures, portraits, big city scenes, landscapes and still-life images of flowers. His emotional way of painting is mainly driven by a desire for freedom from social constraints and conventions. In the past 50 years, Keil has created numerous large- and small-scale paintings in oil and mixed media on canvas but also some sculptures in wood and steel and a great number of majolicas.
