HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY……Enjoy some candy from artist PETER ANTON….

Happy Mothers Day mom and every mother in the world. Thanks for being you and helping out!

Lets have some fun as Bob Ross would say and enjoy looking at food as art. Peter Anton is world renown born in New Haven, Connecticut in the year 1963, for his mixed media works that deal with the fattening sugary foods most everyone eats! Anton works larger than life giving him unique results.

First solo show in 1993 at thirty years of age.

Anton had a very unique entry for the 2012 Art Basel Miami. His work was installation where the viewer went through the exhibit in an actual roller coaster. Anton had filled the sides of backdrop with images of disaster that might exist in a world with live sized candies and sweets. People stood in line for many hours for this unique experience.
