BIOGRAPHY

Peter Markus Jentes (b. 1976) is a Manila-based contemporary artist known for using vibrant lines and shapes in subtle yet mesmerizing paintings. A Bachelor of Fine Arts graduate of Pepperdine University, he developed a distinctive style that blends sharp geometric minimalism with bold colors. While much of his career focused on photography, graphic design and advertising, he learned to capitalize on his creative experiences, channeling them towards his wave of personal artwork. Much of his geometric body of work was first shown to the public in his 2019 solo exhibit titled “MIAMI”, and continues to do this type of work on request.
More recently, Markus’s approach to art has been more abstract expressionist in nature, where he uses a blend of acrylics, spray paints and other mediums. He further departs from his confort zone of hard-edged paintings to explore new styles and personal expression, which is quite evident in his current volume of nature-inspired work.
