Swiss artist Heinz-Peter Kohler (hpk) has been painting for over six decades now, and has received numerous cetificates, stipends and accolades on both a national and international platform.
The scope of his work ranges from landscape, floral motives, people and mystical creatures to the surreal. They fill thousands of of his paintings, edgings and sketches. It's impossible to show here more than just a hint of what his body of work contains, but maybe it will be enough to catch your interest, dear Reader.
Kohler's paintings are part of many private and public collections. He was a student of the famous Swiss painter Max von Mühlenen (10.02.1903 - 20.10.1971) but developed his personal style, incorporating a wide range of techniques. He mostly works in water colors, but has done paintings in oil as well as produced bronze figurines. His water color works included large (2 x 2 metres) as well as tiny sizes (about the size of a post stamp).
A collection of some 168 paintings in A5 and A4 format (about 15x21 cm and about 21x30 cm) has been put together in a dedicated catalogue. This is a good chance to get ahold of some original paintings by the artist from works done in 2010 at very interesting prices. Download the catalogue here.
