Couturier, industrial designer, artist and Pulchri board member, is how the journalist Vera de Jonckheere describes Peter George dâ€™Angelino Tap in 2014. The creations of this versatile designer cannot easily be put in a box. The starting point is the needle art and the unique approach to the pattern. From sketch to robe: his work is characterized by a perfectionist craftsmanship.
Dâ€™Angelino Tap moves on new artistic paths with visionary swirl. The designs transcend fashion and textile, they touch on design and other arts such as literature and music. In the past thirty years he has given colorful shape to numerous projects, shows, international opera productions and exhibitions.
The creations are often inspired by a special reason. Peter George d ‘Angelino Tap is known for, among other things, the assignment he received from the National Committee on the 200 Years of Kingdom: Panta Rhei, which included the project “Crowns as collars and collars as crowns”. The premiere took place in the presence of Z.M. de Koning. It is a great challenge to discover all the symbolism that dâ€™Angelino Tap uses in his designs.
Peter George d ‘Angelino Tap was born in The Hague and has been working in this city for many years. Pulchri Studio, the stately building that Hendrik Willem Mesdag once purchased for the Hague artists’ association, is one of his favorite exhibition spaces. Panorama Mesdag was his first important museum experience.
