Peter Škerl

Peter Škerl (1973) graduated in graphic design and illustration. At the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Ljubljana, he evolved his illustration into a creative, comprehensively designed, and imaginative whole. With an eye for illustrating literary content, he used various painting techniques and their combinations to develop a unique artistic expression. He has co-created plays and puppet shows, initially as an amateur actor, and later also as a visual concept designer. He has received numerous awards for his work, including the Hinko Smrekar Award for his illustrations for Barbara Simoniti’s Marshfolk, which were also included in the international illustration exhibition at the Bologna Children’s Book Fair. He has been nominated for the Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award three times and the Hans Christian Andersen Award twice.
