Peter Gronquist: Fashion Revolution With Designer Weapons




Bay Area artist Peter Gronquist's solo show of designer weapons called “The Revolution Will Be Fabulous: A Weapons of Mass Designer Show” opened at Gallery 1988 this past May.

The collection of designer weapons includes guns, semi-automatics, chain saws and rocket launchers clad in designer fabrics and adorned with luxury logos by Gucci, Hermes, Prada, D&G, Dior, Coach, Burberry, Fendi, Versace and Louis Vuitton. Also included but not shown are pacman grenades, an LV electric chair and more.

Although as an art form his work is clichéed and 'easy', it certainly is unusual and clearly has its appeal to the public. Prices start at $3,000 for the weapons shown here and several have already been sold.
