Galeria de Arte AFK

Peter Mars

"Inspired by wallpaper, candy wrappers, billboards and match packs, this influential American Pop Artist enters his third decade of art creation. Mars' colorful, quirky artworks disrupt predictable interpretation, and transform the ordinary things we see every day into entirely new experiences that tickle the senses, and delight the child inside.

 

Using the joy and nostalgia found in everyday objects, Peter Mars explores popular culture, the passage of time, and the icons that each period adopts as its own. His works form a running commentary on global popular culture.

 

Much of Mars' work reflects the American pop culture of his childhood in the 1960s and 70s, notably the idealized American family, comic book figures, television and space age inventions."

Peter Mars nasceu Portland, Oregon em 1959
