DON'T STOP EVER

WeAr (German) - - ARTIST - PE­TER TUN­NEY

Pe­ter Tun­ney (Ame­ri­can, b. 1961) is a force of na­tu­re with bound­less crea­ti­ve ener­gy, sprea­ding his po­si­ti­ve mes­sa­ges in un­con­ven­tio­nal ways and de­li­ver­ing works of art to a world­wi­de collec­tor ba­se. He works in al­most every me­di­um: paint, col­la­ge, wood, pho­to­gra­phy, found ob­jects and dis­car­ded ma­te­ri­als. Sin­ce de­cla­ring him­s­elf an ar­tist in 1987, Tun­ney de­li­vers his mes­sa­ges, such as “Grat­ti­tu­de”, “Don’t Pa­nic”, “The Time Is Al­ways Now”, “Fe­ar Less, Love Mo­re” and “Chan­ge the Way You See Ever­y­thing” to a vast and glo­bal au­di­ence.

Tun­ney has ow­ned and ope­ra­ted ground floor stu­di­os and gal­le­ries in Lo­wer Man­hat­tan for 27 ye­ars. Open dai­ly and free to the pu­b­lic, they ha­ve em­bo­di­ed his de­ep con­nec­tion to and un­der­stan­ding of the ci­ty. In ad­di­ti­on to his cur­rent Tri­be­ca space in Leo­nard Street, for the last eight ye­ars Tun­ney has al­so main­tai­ned a gal­le­ry in the he­art of Mia­mi’s fa­med Wyn­wood Walls. As Wyn­wood’s first ten­ant, the Pe­ter Tun­ney Ex­pe­ri­ence has be­en a fix­tu­re in of the thri­ving Wyn­wood neigh­borhood.

At his co­re, Tun­ney is much mo­re than a vi­su­al ar­tist and busi­ness­man. He be­lie­ves in hu­man­kind and the good that re­sults from per­for­ming count­less small acts of kind­ness. Over the ye­ars, Tun­ney has spent ti­re­less hu­man ener­gy and do­na­ted count­less works of art to de­ser­ving or­ga­niza­t­i­ons. Most re­cent­ly, his main phil­an­thro­pic ef­forts are de­vo­ted to cri­mi­nal justi­ce re­form, sup­porting wrong­ful­ly con­vic­ted in­di­vi­du­als, and en­ding the stig­ma of men­tal ill­ness. tun­ney­art.com
