About The Work

This unique painting by Gio Black Peter is from a body of work created in late 2015 and early 2016 that is heavily influenced by current events and political discourse in the United States, including police brutality and the Black Lives Matter movement, the rise of Donald Trump, anti-immigrant sentiments, right-wing terrorism, and political violence. For example, the painting titled Bad Cops Make Good Snacks depicts a post-coital Adam and Eve as a black man and trans woman, looking on as the serpent devours a corrupt policeman.
