The artist's career could not be more varied: Initially trained as a machinist, Peter Weber has been interested in music since early childhood. His first jazz record had such an effect on him that he decided to learn to play the double bass. He built his first instrument himself and soon had "concerts" in bands. But he was also attracted to the pictorial arts. His studies at the Fachhochschule in Hamburg with Max H. Mahlmann had a decisive influence on him and he devoted himself to creating works of "concrete art". His early years as a painter focused on Op-Art with its imaginary space, but he was soon fascinated by the phenomenon of folding and the mathematical diversity of this technique. Works folded in paper, cotton, synthetics, and even steel now dominate his artwork. Since 2001, felt has become his primary medium.
