Of all of his work, Missing’s most recognizable is the upside down martini glass icon known as “The Party’s Over”. Credos and slogans denouncing capitalism and police would often accompany the image all over the LES and other parts of Manhattan. Creativity has always been part of Missing’s ideology and he believes it can lead to happiness and love. Missing feels that art needs to have a strong message and that, due to the times, it will by nature be political. He has taught young people, organized against the forces he feels hold people back and used the streets as and his music as a platform to get his message out. Global warming, food policy and a widening wealth gap all have a place in the conversation that has surrounded “The Party’s Over”.
Alife will release a signed and numbered edition of 10 unique works, hand-forged iron key chains and two t-shirts featuring artwork by Peter Missing.
