Peep Ainsoo was born in Viljandi, Estonia. He has been both a designer and an abstract graphic artist, making mostly large-scale ink paintings. Lately, he has turned his focus to digital drawing. This medium has enabled him to search for harmony between the artwork and the space surrounding it.
Ainsoo’s artworks are often the result of combining pre-made parts and adding new elements drawn for the specific artwork. The resulting digital graphic art is abstract, with spontaneous twists. Ainsoo’s art is introspective, since he usually draws images from his mind. The different objects and shapes in his art can be seen as reflections of what has been recorded in his subconscious. Also, Peep’s creations are greatly influenced by his favorite artist—Nature itself.
This source material is arranged into organized, symmetrical compositions, forming windows into a world that Peep has created. As most of his drawings use a monochrome color scheme, the viewer has the added possibility to interpret the spatiality of the artwork in various ways by playing around with the foreground and background in the composition. The viewer is encouraged to observe each artwork on different occasions. This way the viewer can see how what we perceive is affected by our own state of mind.
