Peeter Allikfollow this artist
About the artistPeeter Allik (born 1966 in Põltsamaa) is one of the founding members of the Kursi School, an art grouping opposing to the metropolis-centered “official“ model of art in Estonia. Among the Kursians, Allik started exhibiting his syrrealistic oil paintings in the second half of the 1980s. In the nineties he became a productive printmaker and painter, whose body of work has been associated both with the neopop movement as well as the later return of surrealism. His works often display a grotesque sense of dislocated reality that combine into a world, which is difficult to be ignored.
