Author(s): Paul Peter Piech
n this first monograph on graphic artist Paul Peter Piech, curator and art historian Zoe Whitley diligently explores the biographical background, stylistic influences and life experiences which left a lasting impact on his oeuvre. Having worked as both an independent artist and for the advertising industry, Piech’s range of ability is remarkable, his bold and often rough-hewn style immediately recognisable. A pacifist not unfamiliar with criticism and dissent, he was troubled by apathy and strove against it, using the voice of graphic expression to raise political and social issues. Full of vibrant reproductions of Piech’s work, this gorgeous book celebrates his remarkable life and career.
