Peter Rothmeier Ravn is a Danish painter. He holds a master’s degree in architecture and design from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen and has studied at Syracuse University and the Parsons School of Design. Before his debut as an artist, he was a central figure in the Danish field of design and music with his work on design and visual identity, as record cover and poster designer and as a director of music videos.
He was behind a string of remarkable Danish record sleeves and a pioneer of the Scandinavian music video. Through the 1980’s and 1990’s he developed groundbreaking and visually experimenting work for many of the biggest names in Scandinavian rock and pop. In the 1990’s Ravn was the architect behind the fashion project DEMOCRATS characterized by T-shirts with conceptual graphic designs boasting philosophical, political and often controversial slogans.
Around the millennium Ravn began to paint. Since then, he has been a fast rising star with a number of both solo and group exhibitions in Denmark as well as abroad.
