Peter Long

Peter is a painter and printmaker. He graduated from Massachusetts College of Art and Design in 2008 with a Bachelors Degree in 2D Fine Art. His work draws from the aesthetics of Mexican Renaissance mural painters, Bolshevik propaganda, Abstract Expressionists and American Hardcore music to create painted collages of post industrial decay, social unrest, and economic disparity. The paintings mix the flattened space of screenprinted posters and graffiti with physicality of oil paint in a clash of styles that is at times chaotic and disorientating.
