Peter Gric | Czech Republic

Peter Gric is an artist born in 1968 in Brno, Czechoslovakia. He is well-known for combining natural and surreal images with detailed architectural designs. He started using computer graphics in the early 1990s. This led to his unique style, seen especially in his “Artificial Spaces” series. The series explores strange worlds using three-dimensional shapes.

In addition to his surreal landscapes, Gric also creates the “Mnemosyne” series. They show humans mixed with minerals and buildings. This gives Gric’s art a mysterious quality. He worked on Guillermo del Toro’s film “At the Mountains of Madness.” He also taught at the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts.

Gric’s artworks are in famous collections worldwide. This shows how respected he is in surrealism mixed with machines. We have the chance to talk to Peter. We’ll ask him about the fascinating world of a visionary artist with big ideas. Join us as we discover the details of their journey and the powerful influence of their work.

 

Can you tell us about your journey from Brno to Vienna and how it has influenced your art?

Growing up in Brno, I was lucky to have parents who saw my talent for art and encouraged it. When we moved to Austria in 1980, my life changed dramatically. We settled in Linz, where I studied graphic design and later attended the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna.

Moving from Brno to Vienna exposed me to new cultures, countries, and art. It influenced my work a lot. The vibrant atmosphere of Vienna and Prof. Arik Brauer, my mentor, helped shape my art and vision. In my creative process, I am still inspired by the connection between art and life. My journey has taught me this.
