Peter Valentiner was one of the most effective artists in France in the 1960s and 1970s. He was involved in many important exhibitions and also worked as an exhibition organiser himself. In 1971, he was a prize-winner at the 7th Biennale of Youth in Paris, an international competition in which such renowned artists from Germany as Blinky Palermo, Ulrich Rückriem, Imi Knoebel, Ansgar Nierhoff and Klaus Rinke took part at the time.

Peter Valentiner was represented in numerous exhibitions, together with the former members of the historical group "Supports-Surface": Jean-Pierre Pincemin, André-Pierre Arnal, Marc Devade, Louis Cane, Vincent Bioules, Claude Viallat, ...

An important work of his is in the collection of the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris.

He himself says about his work: "Each painting is a representation in which colour is transformed into light and form into space. Through the space-light relationship, a work is created in which a world is expressed; that of balance, tension and depth."
