"The artist is the creator of beautiful things. To reveal art and conceal the artist is art's aim."

(Oscar Wilde, The picture of Dorian Gray)

About Mr Peluche

I am a micro-sculptor and miniat(o)urist, currently based in Berlin. Different languages and bloods run through the brain of this barmy European zirkuskid, you can choose for yourself what you would like me to be. I have been working as a street musician, and experienced living life as an “outsider” in the most accurate sense of the word, namely outside - and I love it. Consequently I began working with 1:87 plastic scale figures about 1-2cm (0.4 – 0.8 inches) small, which I assemble, (re)paint and compose for the lens of my camera in order to re-animate them and their respective surroundings. My first photo-series “my summer of love – make love not war” received a great deal of attention and acclaim as on art- and design blogs around the globe, and in no time brought me invitations by galleries in Germany, Norway and Spain, which makes me feel very honored. I was also featured on german and italian tv, please find the videos under "press". Thank you.
