Peter Gric is best known for his mysterious abandoned futuristic architectural landscapes. He studied under professor Arik Brauer at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna, who was one of the original members of the Vienna School of Fantastic Realism. Peter has come to represent the next generation of artists influenced from this movement.
Peter has been exhibited alongside other notable artists, such as H R Giger, and is a member of the Labyrinthe group. He has illustrated numerous book covers, predominantly for sci-fi or fantasy genres. Being of a younger generation of artists, he has not shied from digital technology and also works in 3D modelling. He often uses 3D techniques to conceptualize some of his more complex works before committing to paint.
