The Peter Tunney Experience

Peter Tunney is a New York-based artist, and his work, which frequently mixes and varies in media, is 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 relay stories of 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.”
