About Peter Bastaja
Welcome to my portfolio on Saatchi Art. My diverse career as an artist has allowed me to indulge my creative passion in both painting and photography over many years. I have had the good fortune to have exhibited my original artworks around the world. I have lived in wonderful countries such as South Africa, Hong Kong, England, Germany and Denmark and worked as an artist, freelance photographer and photography teacher. My first solo exhibition was in South Africa followed by another solo show in Denmark. More recently I have also exhibited in Italy, Australia and the USA. There is no doubt my extensive travels have had a profound influence on my eclectic style. I am currently based at home on the Sunshine Coast in Australia where I have been concentrating on abstract artworks. You can also view my artworks online at Peter's Fine Art, where you can purchase online or view PeterBastajaArtStudio on Facebook. Born 1952, Sydney, Australia.
