Kevin Peterson’s Urban Fantasies

Painter Kevin Peterson has a true gift for ultra-realism, and his paintings show a depth of creativity and eccentricity that should bring a smile to your face. Little girls in scenes of urban decay explore their surroundings with animals, showcasing a sense of wonder and curiosity.  From the artist, via Faith is Torment:

“My work is about the varied journeys that we take through life,” explains Peterson in his artist statement. “It’s about growing up and living in a world that is broken. These paintings are about trauma, fear and loneliness and the strength that it takes to survive and thrive. They each contain the contrast of the untainted, young and innocent against a backdrop of a worn, ragged, and defiled world.”
