Cleon Peterson for Arrels Barcelona

Cleon Peterson was born and raised in Seattle. He spent a number of years in New York before eventually
moving to Los Angeles, where he now lives and works. Cleon’s path to becoming the mind-blowing artist
he is today has not been an easy one. After surviving a childhood spent in and out of hospitals as a result
of his asthma, overcoming a drug addiction, and making it out of jail and psychiatric hospitals, Cleon
brought out his artistic side and hasn’t stopped creating the harsh, violent yet clean and awe-inspiring
works he is known for. His art has been exhibited at some of the most prestigious galleries around the
world including Palais de Tokyo, Art Basel Miami Beach, The Hole NYC, and Over the Influence in Hong
Kong and L.A.
