Visual artist Peter Klashorst, born on February 11, 1957 in Santpoort, quickly gained fame after graduating from the Amsterdam Rietveld Academy in 1981. In this period, Klashorst not only focuses on his painting skills; he gives full rein to his artistic talents in his punk band Soviet Sex, his own pirate TV station Bizar TV and his discotheque Bizar-discotheque. Peter Klashorst started his career in the period of neo expressionism in the Netherlands, the "new savages". In the mid-1980s, Klashorst's powerfully expressive style froze, his paintings became more abstract, the colors disappeared and his geometric work connected with the "neo geo" movement. In 1987 on Tenerife with his colleagues Rob Scholte and Jiri Dokoupil, he discussed the crisis of modernism: What can you paint as a painter now that everything has already been painted? Klashorst and Dokoupil argued that painting had to be reinvented and began to copy reality, just as the painters before modernism did. Thus was born the group After Nature, which revived genres such as nude, landscape and still life. As co-initiator of the artists' collective After Nature, Klashorst gave a new impulse to Dutch art history. The After Nature group (1987-1995), which, in addition to founder Klashorst, also included the artists Jurriaan van Hall, Gijs and Aad Donker, Ernst Voss and Bart Domburg, opposed the prevailing abstract expressionism and caused a furore in the eighties and nineties with a innovative figurative painting style and turned away from the "is one" in art. Their relationship to subjects and with the audience was very direct and unpretentious. Their joint performances on the street, in nature and during art events were well known and notorious. That "snobbery" and "idealism" were also counted among the items to be demolished became apparent when Klashorst subsequently emerged as a portrait painter of "tout Amsterdam" and his participation in various TV programs: De Sprekende Ezel, Ikon and Painting in acrylic with Peter Klashorst, Teleac/NOT. Peter Klashorst (1957) graduated in 1981 from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam. The 1980s are a period in which a new movement emerged in Europe, that of the "wild Painting" artists. Klashorst's painting style is immediately welcomed by this movement. After a number of exuberant and energetic years, Klashorst's powerful expressive style froze. His canvases become abstract and cold and the colors disappear. Klashorst's work seems icy and indifferent.
