"The original piece was a look at how religion changes the images of their deities to fit new followers and I wanted to make a Jesus and Mary that would fit into the poor right wing whites in this country, or at least the stereotype of what that means. To keep with that theme I thought it would be great to print the images on a kitch item which you might find decorating the homes of the trailer park residents.
These pieces were from my solo show last year at lOAKal Gallery in Oakland, called Salvation Mini Mart. The show had to do with how religion changes over time and how Christianity in particular can change in a nation like the US which is so consumer driven.
The original pieces were done with oil on a wood panel, each has their own custom frame made from a whole car tire. The plates are printed in a Chinese factory like most goods in the US." - Peter Adamyan

ABOUT Peter Adamyan:
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.
