Artist Peter Soriano in conversation with Sharon Butler

On May 11, 2016, in conjunction with the release of Peter Soriano: Permanent Maintenance, a publication documenting Soriano’s largest wall drawing to date, artist Peter Soriano spoke with Sharon Butler, artist and publisher of Two Coats of Paint, about the evolution of his art; the idea behind and process of creating Permanent Maintenance; the meaning of his (seemingly) inscrutable graphic lexicon; and the iterative nature of his work. The event was organized by the Colby College Museum of Art and hosted by Skowhegan School of Painting & Sculpture.
