Peter Mars

Peter Mars is an American artist in the Pop Art movement and incorporates the use of silkscreen for his paintings. The art of silkscreen has been popularized by many contemporary artists such as Alexander Calder, Roy Lichtenstein, and Andy Warhol. In the tradition of Pop Art, mechanical repetition plays an important part in Mars’ work. He is known for completing his paintings in series, where the same image appears, each time within a slightly different context. Peter’s art is inspired by popular culture including everyday objects like old signs, billboards, match packs, TV shows, candy wrappers, and wallpaper.
