Peter learned as a graphic designer in art high school, but then continued the art collage as a painter student. In those years he was the youngest apprentice of the old mural painter master, Laszlo Patay. in small groups they finished over 500m2 (5400 sq ft) of brand new paintings in 3 different churches in Hungary.
The same years Peter finished a music album and had his first song published, he composed, wrote the lyrics, sang and directed the music video for.
In his twenties he kept learning from the internationally known master painter Matteo Massagrande, and after several exhibitions he moved to Key West, Florida, USA.
Soon he found his newest master in Dru Blair, master of photorealist airbrush art. Peter has been developing his own way of painting, mixing many tools and methods of art.
