Peter Schuyff

Peter Schuyff (b. 1958, Baarn, Netherlands) is a prominent member of the Neo-Geo movement that emerged in New York in the 1980s.

Born in the Netherlands, he later moved to the United States, where he made a name for himself with his unique approach to painting. His work is characterised by his use of geometric shapes and his ability to create light and movement by applying thin layers of acrylic paint. As one of the most innovative artists of his generation, Schyuff continues to push the boundaries of abstract art, exploring new techniques and concepts.

In 2017 Le Consortium, Dijon, presented ‘Has Been’ a retrospective of Schuyff’s work made between 1981-89. His more recent public exhibitions include Whitney Biennial, New York (2014); New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York (2005); and The Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art, Ridgefield, US (1996). Schuyff's work can be found in the permanent collections of MOMA, New York: MOCA, LA; Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York and The Fisher Landau Foundation, New York. Schuyff lives and works in both Amsterdam, NL and Bari, IT.
