Lorenz Peter


February 13 - March 14, 2009


Lorenz Peter grew up in northern Alberta in the early eighties. He attended Keyano College in 1990, studying painting & drawing, but soon abandoned the curriculum to complete his work on the Side Effect mini comic (1993) as a form of catharsis. Following the completion and success of this endeavor, Peter's energy was directed into the representation of surrealist fantasies, from which three critically acclaimed graphic novels emerged - The Last Remaining Ancient Mellish Bird, Chaos Mission (Pedlar Press) and Dark Adaptation (Pedlar Press). Lorenz Peter now resides in Toronto where he divides his time between collaborative musical performance, as part of the infamous Corpusse duo, and his studio practice. He is currently at work on a new graphic novel.
