New York City-based pop artist and APJ advisory board member, Peter Tunney, is the epitome of optimism, creativity, and adventure. Using his art to overpower apathy, Peter Tunney creates inspiring large-scale collages using the messages he lives by: “THE TIME IS ALWAYS NOW”, “DON’T PANIC”, and our personal favorite, “GRATTITUDE”. Peter Tunney’s work seriously pops!
Peter Tunney, aka “PT”, has been supporting our work in Haiti from the beginning. A ubiquitous character at nearly every major APJ event, Peter Tunney is sure to make a splash bringing fun, laughter, and creativity wherever he goes.
This week, we were thrilled to have Peter Tunney share his message at the Academy for Peace and Justice. Visiting with the students in the classroom that bears his name, PT and the students spoke for an hour about determination, finding your passion, and the true meaning of life: doing what comes from your heart. Peter’s message to the Academy for Peace and Justice students: Impossible IS possible. For students like ours who are fulfilling their dreams through education, that message is sure to resonate.
Stay tuned for the announcement of an exciting project PT will be bringing to Haiti very soon! Thanks to Peter for sharing his journey and inspiring all of us at APJ.
