Looks like the Midas touch has struck again.  Oregon born sculptor, Peter Gronquist grew up in a creative family and began drawing at an early age.  Peter eventually graduated from San Franicsco Art Institute in 2001 and now resides in Oakland California.  In his unique taxidermy sculptures , Gronquist clusters animal species with assault artillery, forming a juxtaposition of the innocent and the aggressor . The works provide a clever and appropriate analysis of gun culture, all the while they appear to exhibit a double message that’s part empowering and part hazardous.  Check out more of his work below.
