Originally trained as a typesetter and dabbling as a jazz double-bassist, Peter Weber moved into the pictorial arts, studying at the Fachhochschule in Hamburg under non-objective painter Max H. Mahlmann. In Weber’s early career as an artist, he worked with paint and canvas, though since 2001, he has worked mainly in the felt medium (although he has also worked in steel and paper), still utilizing geometry as a leading element, folding large single pieces of wool felt into patterns without any cuts in the material.

Weber’s work has been exhibited internationally, and is housed in public and private collections, including Museum fur Redktive Kunst in Swiadow, Helms Museum in Hamburg, the Landesmuseum in Linz, and the Frederick A. Weisman Art Foundation, Los Angeles, CA during the Art Fair in Chicago.
