    Art Brokerage: Peter Anton American Artist: b. 1963. Peter Anton (born 1963 in New Haven, Connecticut) is an American artist and sculptor. His primary subject matter is food with an emphasis on chocolates and other sweets. Often referred to as "Candy Warhol," Anton creates giant realistic sculptures and is best known for his "bigger than life" boxed chocolates. At times Anton's studio can resemble a sweet shop since it is filled with dozens of real treats which he uses as models. His beginning process is to eat, smell, feel, study and dissect a new food over and over again in order to hyper-familiarize himself with the new subject. He then begins the long and tedious process of sculpting, carving, sanding, painting, and construction of his mixed media works. Anton had his first solo show in 1993 at the Henri Gallery in Washington, DC. His first one person exhibition in New York City was in 1995 at the Bruce R. Lewin Gallery in Soho. The show featured over seventy giant fruits and vegetables. It gained him much attention and it sold out. He went on to have four more solo shows at the gallery. Anton also had solo exhibitions at Galerie Ralph Schriever in Cologne, Germany, UrbanArt in Seoul, Korea, the Allan Stone Gallery in New York City, Galerie Terminus in Munich, the Hammer Galleries on 57th Street in New York City and Galerie Adler Bertin-Toublanc in Miami. Peter Anton's work has been featured in group exhibitions in the United States and abroad, including the Museum Villa Rot in Burgrieden, Germany; the Austin Museum of Art in Texas; the Hudson River Museum in Yonkers, New York; the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in Ridgefield, Connecticut; the Castellani Art Museum in Niagara, New York; the Keszler Gallery in New York City; the Allan Stone Gallery in New York City; the Elaine Baker Gallery in Boca Raton, Florida; and the COPIA Museum in Napa Valley, California.
