K.H. Petersen Oilpaintings of Norway's South Coast ~

Today I would like to introduce painter and concept art pioneer
K.H. Petersen
to you!
He was born 1950 in Castrop-Rauxel in Germany, but moved up north as a teenager.
Later he went more north to Scandinavia and found the greatest experiences and challanges in Norway, where he had his atelier for almost ten years.
He studied art and graphics at Kiel University;
his prof being nobody smaller then Ekkehard Thieme. 
The fatal diagnosis of Cardia-cancer forced him back to Germany
to get the best ever treatment.
Shown above are two large oilpaintings
representing the area around Stangnes and Stabbestad at Norway's very
austral coast.
