Peter Tunney is a Neo-Pop artist working with language and text. His large-scale paintings are created with collaged packing materials and newspapers, drawing imagery and phrases from popular media sources to create block-letter positive aphorisms such as “DON’T PANIC” and “THE TIME IS ALWAYS NOW.” Tunney’s graphic technique references the language-based works of both Christopher Wool and Mel Bochner, combining clustered letterforms with bold Americana motifs. Born in 1961 in New York, the former Wall Street executive, and friend of Peter Beard, now currently lives and works between New York, NY and Miami, FL.
