From a review of his Foodhist Show written by Angie Kordic (http://www.widewalls.ch/peter-antons-foodhist-temple-unix-gallery/):
"Peter Anton was born in 1963 in The United States. Often referred to as Candy Warhol, he started exhibiting his food sculptures in 1991, while his first solo show happened in 1993. His work has been featured in numerous museums and galleries throughout Europe, the US and Asia, and is part of many collections, both public and private. In 2014, Peter Anton was named one of four artists to watch by Forbes Magazine.
New York’s Unix Gallery will host the Peter Anton – The Foodhist Temple exhibition from April 2nd until May 14th, 2015.
In his own words, Peter Anton says his art aims to give its viewers “the ultimate satisfaction”. He is doing just that – the sculptures are colorful, masterfully executed and very detailed, to the tiniest bit. The notion of art offering visual pleasure and inspiring people is what guides Peter Anton in his work, and when it comes to food, it is a perfect way to make people come together and to remember and indulge in what we love and crave – just enjoy all the things that make us feel good."
