Henk Peeters

° 1925

Born in 's-Gravenhage (Netherlands), lives in Hall, Gelderland (Netherlands).

Henk Peeters (1925, the Netherlands, lives in Hall) abandoned a figurative, socially-engaged style of painting for an informal, material-based approach in the late 1950s, while remaining firmly anti-capitalist. In 1958 he was one of the founders of the Informal Group in the Netherlands, which maintained contacts with Piero Manzoni, Yves Klein and Lucio Fontana. In 1961 it transformed itself into the group Nul, connected to the German Group Zero and the French Groupe de Recherche d’Art Visuel. Thanks to these European connections Peeters was invited to participate in the second of the international Nove tendencije exhibitions in Zagreb in 1963.
