Peter Linde Busk

Peter Linde Busk (b. 1973, Copenhagen, Denmark) is a feral Academy artist, a painter whose skills and appetite for materials have led him to a style of painting that often closes in on sculpture and operates at an almost geological level, stratified and in contact with deep history. Busk has been the subject of three solo exhibitions and multiple group exhibitions — including the 2009 inaugural show — at Josh Lilley, as well as institutional solo exhibitions at the Borås Konstmuseum, Borås, Sweden; GL STRAND, Copenhagen; and the Holstebro Kunstmuseum, Holstebro, Denmark.

Peter Linde Busk lives and works in Copenhagen.
