Vape Shop Olympia - Peter De Potter
Peter De Potter is a Belgian artist who lives and works in Antwerp.
In his work he has developed his own unique method, blending his photography and video with his poetry, slogans, graphics, montage and appropriations into an idiosyncratic visual language that resonates in the fields of art, fashion and contemporary online culture.
His longstanding collaboration with fashion designer Raf Simons (from 2001 to 2010) involved showcasing his artworks on clothing items and brand identity and equally entailed consultancy and assisting on concepts. De Potter designed and art directed Raf Simons’ now cult-status book ‘Redux’ as well as the ‘Repeat’ installation for Pitti Immagine in 2005.
In 2016 De Potter designed two highly publicised album covers for Kanye West’s 8th studio album ‘The Life Of Pablo’.
Peter De Potter’s first book ‘The Vanity of Certain Flowers’ was published in September 2016. His second, ‘All Statues Sing Protest Songs’, was published by IDEA Books in September 2017.
