    Artwork sold in perfect condition

    “I'm proud to be releasing the large format screenprint World on Fire in celebration of my new show Truth & Lies.

    This body of work features 11 original paintings chronicling my thoughts on America’s political and social discord leading up to the 2020 elections. Some of the paintings have never been seen before now. Some I made into prints, which I released during what will inevitably be regarded as one of the deepest periods of crisis in our country’s history.

    Throughout this time, many of us grappled with an internal character-defining fight, which led us to question our roles as individuals within society. In response to the work’s initial presentation, I regularly received threats in emails and direct messages. Some of the threats were serious enough to report to the FBI. In the end, I realized that as an artist, I have a personal duty to speak directly about what I see as right and wrong and always to express my truth.”

Cleon Peterson

United States Born in: 1973 Bestsellers Emerging artists
Cleon Peterson was born in 1973 in Seattle. He grew up in a bohemian familiar environment, encouraging creation. Since he was asthmatic during his childhood, he liked drawing during his numerous hospitalizations. Later on, when he lived in New York, he became a drug addict and was in jail and in psychiatric hospitals a few times. It is from this experience that the artist draws his inpiration today.

Urban violence, the ghettos and the tension that prevails in a certain environment are all part of his work. "I paint a reality that not everybody has gone through, but it exist and is out there". There is a sort of primary life that goes with misery, that is what I try to approach in my paintings", says the artist, without any kind of moral jugement.

In parallel to his activity as a painter, Cleon Peterson is graphic designer known in the world of skateboarding. In 1998, he joined the Californian group of assistants of Shepard Fairey.

In 2009, he did his first solo exhibition in Los Angeles and has not stop doing similar projects since then. In 2004, he did a 50 meter fresco at the Palais de Tokyo.
