‘Abstract’ by Anthony Peters
“London to me is abstract. The ghosts of speeding cars, glass and steel towers alongside 500 year old epic stonework. Abstract shapes viewed from a late night bus, blue skies carved up by the harsh right angles of tower blocks.”
“My favorite abstract places are the brutalist Shangri La of the South Bank and the Barbican, all that glorious concrete, now abstract amongst the glass and steel, and abstract of meaning since the Utopian ideals of that beautiful Brutalist era have faded.”
Peters is a maker of things, “occasionally pretty good things”, who has over 10 years of experience in the design and illustration industry. From his coastal office he runs a successful studio under the name of Imeus Design. Follow him on Twitter.
An obsession with creating a narrative using minimal graphic techniques and a limited colour palette is at the heart of Anthony’s work. This approach has won him an array of work with clients such as New Scientist, Fab, Nobrow, HSBC, Macmillan Cancer Charity, Okido Magazine, John Lewis and GQ magazine. His work has been exhibited in London, Los Angeles, New York, Milan and Paris and he is a long time collaborator with Print Club London, with whom he has exhibited since 2009.
