/// Biography of PETER KLASEN ///
From 1955, Peter Klasen began learning lithography and airbrushing techniques. He entered the University of the Arts in Berlin. This was then the avant-garde school and benefited from the presence of young teachers trained in the spirit of the Bauhaus or German expressionism, such as Hann Trier, an important painter from the informal school. He took lessons from Will Grohmann, Hans Richter and Karl Schmidt-Rottliff. In 1959, he arrived in Paris and, in 1960, moved to a studio in the rue de Clignancourt. In 1962, he was one of the founders of Nouvelle Figuration. In this movement, which also took the name of Figuration narrative, we find in particular Valerio Adami, Erró, Jacques Monory, Bernard Rancillac and Hervé Télémaque. His first personal exhibition was held in 1966, in Paris.
