About Peter Tunney

View Profile »

Peter Tunney (American) is a New York-based mixed media artist whose works are described as relics of the constant performance that is the artist’s life. His recent works, where optimistic phrases are colorfully painted over collaged newspaper headlines, serve as a “subtle attack on our culture of fear and ennui.” As the media tends to focus on death, destruction, hysteria, and greed, Peter whimsically overpowers them them with his own headlines, such as “DON’T PANIC,” “BELIEVE,” and “CHANGE THE WAY YOU SEE EVERYTHING.”
