Peter Spanjer (b. 1994, Germany) currently lives and works in London, UK. Spanjer graduated with a BA in Fashion Promotion from the University for the Creative Arts, UK, in 2015 and he is currently studying for a MA in Contemporary Art Practice: Moving Image at the Royal College of Art, UK. His work is often framed around, but not limited to, the idea of resistance: resisting the emotional stereotypes placed upon black men; resisting the need to perform his blackness to others; thereby allowing room for self-exploration which he extends to an audience as a piece of visual art.
