Cleon Peterson’s artwork highlights modern society’s tension

All too easily we get caught up in our daily train of though, Los Angeles-based artist Cleon Peterson flips those perceptions upside-down. His work is chaotic and violent, simplistic and raw, jarring and understated.  Clashing figures symbolize a struggle between power and submission in the fluctuating architecture of contemporary society.

His artwork has found international acclaim with showings and murals all across the world. He even has a mural underneath the Eiffel Tower, the first of its kind.

He brings issues that are happening in our own backyard to the forefront, always in a striking manner. His art pulls heavily from Greco and Western art traditions and makes for a classic, bold statement piece on any wall. Follow him on Instagram and turn on your notifications, if you’re lucky and quick enough you might be able to snag his next piece when it drops.
