Peter Kraaibeek's Works
Peter’s digital workwork is partly available on the Ethereum blockchain on OpenSea in the “weirdworld” collection.
Peter Kraaibeek was born and raised in Nordhorn in northwest Germany near the Dutch border. He started his career as an engineer and project manager in computer science and cryptography and works as a digital artist and photographer.
Influenced by his mathematically oriented study of electrical engineering (EE), he began to be interested in complex numbers and their application in art (complex numbers consist of a real and an imaginary number and are required, for example, for the development of electronic circuits and many other things).
In the 1980s, Peter wrote computer programs that displayed Mandelbrot Sets based on complex numbers, and presented the output as his first works. Nowadays, existing programs can be used for this.
Peter‘s interest is the development of the representation of artificial structures based on mathematical algorithms that can be shown in biomorphic variations of nature in an Absolute Surrealism. He is particularly interested in crypto-art and the displaying NFTs (Non Fungible Token) on a blockchain.
Peter loves nature, architecture, digital art, the design of classic cars and values the diversity of visual art.
