    About The Work

    Gio Black Peter’s intricate, highly-saturated images reference both the topical and art historical. 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. “Gio is adapting the visual vocabulary of Matisse, Cocteau and Picasso to examine our most pressing contemporary issues, from gender and sex to race and police violence” said Jason Costa, founder of Casa de Costa.
