Peim grew up in Capilla del Monte, Argentina and returned to the Netherlands to graduate at the Academy of the Arts in Utrecht in 2010. After running a design studio for a couple of years, working with companies like Sagmesiter&Walsh and Kunsthal Rotterdam, he decided to switch his focus to autonomous projects. Peim have always been working in the lively niches in between visual arts, design and performance.
Through a range of graphic techniques including collages, silkscreen and print he likes to play with the visual perception of the viewer, focussing on the relationship between shapes/colors and how they effect the retina and the mind. His works are generally based on grids making use of repetition and algorithms as a compositional method. With a minimalistic punk approach he react to contemporary issues in an abstract but critical way. The performative aspects of making my works are not ignored but rather encouraged.
Commissioned screen-printed works I was asked to create based on the texts by the Zapatista indigenous communities in Mexico.
