Peter Adamyan
Oakland, CA

Born Thanksgiving eve 1987, Peter grew up in Southern California, and blames his ignorance on the education he received from the Los Angeles Unified School District. Television was his father, his mother a constantly running generator, working harder and harder to keep the television set on. His favorite toy growing up was paper and pencil, which he used to draw his favorite cartoon characters and super heroes. Nothing has changed but the cartoon characters and super heroes he chooses to draw. Now based out of Oakland, Peter is an artist who uniquely combines religious, political, and popular culture references that he confronts heartily with sardonic humor and surprising twists.
