Peter-John de Villiers

International Artist

South African born, Peter-John de Villiers lives and works in Oslo, Norway. Avoiding the use of computers as much as possible, the artist draws everything by hand.

The artist’s work crosses boundaries between abstract and figurative but always identifies with the connection between man and the experience of nature. Since the age of 13 Peter-John has been a passionate snowboarder, and his dream came true when he began creating artwork for snowboard companies including Freddy Austbø’s pro-model for Rhythm Snowboards, Burton and YES snowboards and a new start up brand, Vimana.

Aside from his work within the extreme sports industry, de Villiers has also collaborated with numerous other brands such as Volkswagen, Granta, Vans, Grans, Rignes, Vectura, P4, Norsk luftambulanse and Epleslang. He also created several pieces of artwork for the music legend Santana, who used them for t-shirts and posters.

His Lifelines series is an expression of life, an observation of the complexity of growth, development and decay, and the common formula that binds all living things.
