The Belgian artist couple, winner of The London Art Biennale 2019.
In real life and in artistic life a couple that made its way into the glass art world, Johanna as Laureate Master in stained glass and fusion techniques and Peter an award winning international designer joined hands and minds to create contemporary glass art as Pejo.

At first, Pejo created contemporary stained glass windows with a three dimensional twist by adding perspective. Their designs were picked up by some galleries in The Netherlands and Norway where they had their first solo exhibitions. Being restless they soon started with glass fusion techniques, small abstracts mounted in old wood to large figurative glass works. By experimenting with new materials and techniques they created their own unique style, resulting in international recognition.

Their exclusive and unique designs made with the Pejo technique resulted in many international prizes and a permanent exhibition in The European Art Museum in Denmark. They just follow their urge to discover how far glass will allow them to be bent and shaped as they imagine it.

The uniqueness of their art is that their style changes every time, trying to make the next challenge that enters their creative minds, they have no blue or red period, only a vision of two minds thinking alike. Pejo’s glass art is found in many homes in Belgium, The Netherlands, France, Norway, Denmark, Sierra Leone, Thailand and even the United States of America.
