Name: PEAP TARR
Auckland / New Zealand & Phnom Penh / Cambodia
Bio: PEAP TARR has his roots in graffiti art culture yet later evolving the style into his own creation by combining his New Zealand Heritage and Cambodian Heritage to create a unique form of street art with his signature sinister yet tranquil works of art which has caught the attention of art lovers around the world and also gained respect from many of his art peers that has given Peap international recognition and lead to features in various international art magazines and galleries. Peap’s art exists in a world where lightness and darkness battle, yet coexist in the same breath to balance each other and contrast against each other.
Point blank-Peap’s version of street art is truly unique. Working almost exclusively in black and white, Peap’s tribalistic patterns take as much influence from his New Zealand heritage as they do from his Cambodian heritage.
