Peter Skubic (b 1935) is an Austrian artist with Serbian roots, who has had a powerful voice in jewellery and the liberal arts more broadly. With his characteristic provocativeness and adventurous spirit, Skubic has been a trailblazer of contemporary jewellery while also having a powerful impact in the fields of performing arts, bodily art, and spatial pieces.

On display in the Museum of Estonian Architecture’s exhibition are 15 spatial pieces on his most internationally-renowned theme, in which polished steel and pure colour are set to interact in reflections and established proportions. Despite being along in his years, the old master is still brimming with creative zest - displayed in Tallinn is also a fresh series of smaller mirror pieces, as well as jewellery just unveiled at the Schmuck 2016 exhibition in Munich last spring, which are part of a series titled “Nix Dahinter” (“Nothing behind”). Skubic holds an honorary doctor’s degree from the Estonian Academy of Arts.
