Another 100 Colorado Creatives: Peter Strange Yumi

#96: Peter Strange Yumi

Collage artist, musician and videographer Peter Yumi spends a lot of time in the studio, where he creates ever-changing works from scraps and borrowed images and swatches of paint. Lately, they've begun to spill out of the frame into three-dimensional forms. For Yumi, it's all about honest work: He's a one-man assembly line piecing together something graceful and well-designed from the nuts and bolts of a scrap pile.

We asked Yumi, an artist looking for a forum, to take the 100CC questionnaire, and his answers came out as one might expect: deliberate and straightforward, from the heart.

KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Susan Froyd started writing for Westword as the "Thrills" editor in 1992 and never quite left the fold. These days she still freelances for the paper in addition to walking her dogs, enjoying cheap ethnic food and reading voraciously. Sometimes she writes poetry.
