Peter van den Borne has been painting and drawing since the age of ten. With his own interpretation of the Night Watch, he took his first steps in the painter's craft. There are now many realistic works by him, including still lifes and paintings after a model.

Contemporary Realism in particular is a movement in which Peter wants to conquer his own place.

Peter van den Borne at work In 1983 Peter decides to enroll at "DACA" the Drenthe academy of painting. where he was taught by Vrielink, Jacobi and Dillen. In 1985 Peter Dillen starts for himself, and Peter follows him because his way of teaching was particularly appealing. At the end of 1986 their paths separated and Peter specialized in the alchemical side of the painter's craft. Former paint manufacturer Johan Stahlecker guides him and teaches him the tricks of the trade surrounding the preparation of surfaces, mediums, paint and impasto. Armed with this knowledge, and with an eye for all movements and formations within contemporary art, Peter continues his artist's path.
