This body of work consists of over 300 small to larger still life paintings of flowers in the manner of the artist David Bomberg.

Compositionally, each painting has a heavy application of pure oil paint, thickly applied, in the manner of Nicolas de Staël.

Artist Statement

Art is work.

Therefore, an artist’s work is to make art, and much of it.

My floral works explore present moments as well as the moments in between. Flowers painted in a series are records of not only the bouquet itself but the moments of life that happen before, after, and in between.


I'm an artist based in Baltimore, MD. After graduating with a bachelor's degree in Imaging and Digital Art, I began my career teaching art. After several years of teaching, I went back to school and graduated with a degree in Modern Art History. I started my studio Peter Ibenana Paintings in 2015 selling prints of my miniature still life paintings. In 2017, after hitting a low point in my life and career, I discovered the flower series by the British artist David Bomberg and was inspired to paint with renewed vitality and expression.

My current research focus is on 20th century Post War British art, and the School of Paris.

I am a husband, father, son, and brother.
