Since 1993, Peter Steinhauer has been documenting the many facets of Asian culture. Having started off as a black and white photographer, the choice of colour or monochrome in his artworks reflect his keen eye in illustrating the mystic peacefulness of natural landscapes, as well as the hustle and bustle of Asian markets.
For more than 9 years, Steinhauer called Hong Kong home. His passion compels him to visualize scenes of peacefulness and the underlying beauty of urban density, and his works, which expose to viewers the many and often-unnoticed dimensions of Hong Kong, demonstrates his familiarity with the city. From the man-made structures on natural landscapes to the old buildings wrapped in multicoloured scaffolding, Steinhauer focuses on presenting the graphic elements of Asian cities, elements which are often deeply woven into the fabric of the unique cultures where they exist.
Steinhauer lived in Asia for 20 years. His works have been exhibited extensively in Asia, Europe and the USA, and have been collected by the Hong Kong Heritage Museum, the Carnegie Museum of Art (Pittsburg, USA), Gibson Dunn Law Firm (Hong Kong, China), Kirkland Ellis Law Firm (Hong Kong, China), Barclays Asia (Singapore), Fidelity Worldwide Investments (Singapore), SG Global Development Firm (Singapore), the Meridian International Centre in Washington D.C. (USA), and numerous embassies worldwide. He is currently based in San Francisco, USA.
