Painter Kevin Peterson lives and works in Houston, TX. His work deftly balances figures who appear to revel in the American dream and tell tale signs of urban decay. One of the most prevailing features is Peterson's replication of graffiti. Beautifully articulated, the tags play smartly against the chic tone of the painter's figures. Similarly powerful is his ability to juxtapose calm expression in scenes of profound loss. View Peterson's full portfolio here. [Art School Vets]
