On Peter's work I found very interesting the way how he's dealing with space and environment when he’s  creating concept arts for movies.  His buildings and cities are breathtaking but in real life it would be impossible to actually build those buildings .The reason why I choose to research Peter Popken artwork is that I would like to go in this unrealistic, dreamland way as well while creating concept art for one of my Invisible Cities.
