Symposium of the German-French-Youth-Exchange Organisation in the French town Bordeaux and realised the Kultur-Natur-Pyramide (Land Art in the Pyrenees).
1979 Peters was sponsored by the German-French-Youth-Exchange Organisation, what allowed him to deepen his studies of art and design in France. Since 1979 Peters also designed and crafted furniture. 1982 Peters founded the Design-Pool company. Peters’ interest in east-Asian philosophies and life led him 1986 to an intensive engagement with the Yoga-school of Vanda Scaravelli. His personal teacher at that time was Sandra Sabatini. Since 1987, Peters worked as a freelance artist. Peters is very successful in Europe and in the USA, the current exhibition in St. Petersburg/Russia will make him known in Russia, too.
