Description Peter Keil Painting "Suprematist Compostions" Pencil paint on paper, 1972, Pairs France.
Peter Robert Keil grew up in a working-class neighborhood of Berlin. In the late 1940's he discovered his interest in painting, particularly in expressionistic artists with admiration for Pablo Picasso's work. In 1954 the East Berlin-based painter Otto Nagel became his mentor sharing with him skills and painting techniques. In 1954 he began an apprenticeship as an artist metal worker. 1959 and 1961 he studied at the University of Arts in Berlin. When the Berlin Wall was built he lost contact with his mentor Otto Nagel. During his studies at the University of Arts in Berlin, he shared ideas with numerous influential artists of his generation including Georg Baselitz, Eugen Schönebeck, Markus Lüpertz and Joachim Schmettau. During his time in Mallorca, he met with Joan Miró in his studio several times. Throughout the 1960s Keil established studios in Paris, London, Berlin and in the US. Today he mainly lives and works in Zimmerau (Bavaria, Germany).
