14 editions from THE PEANUTS GLOBAL ARTIST COLLECTIVE
Charles M. Schulz is widely regarded as one of the most influential cartoonists of all time. For fifty years, Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and the rest of the Peanuts gang entertained readers on the newspaper comic pages. By creating a depth and familiarity to his characters, Schulz was able to keep attracting new readers while maintaining a devout community that just couldn’t get enough.
At the height of its reach, the Peanuts comic strip was featured in 2,600 newspapers, touching the lives of millions around the world. Though Charles M. Schulz stopped short of calling himself an artist, his line, characters, and the emotional stories he told have influenced innumerable authors, filmmakers, songwriters, painters, and sculptors. Among those are the seven fine artists who comprise The Peanuts Global Artist Collective, an unprecedented global initiative in which the beloved Peanuts characters have been brought to life in new and exciting ways for the public to experience, giving the gift of art to everyone. The project first launched in Spring 2018 with murals in seven cities around the world, and continues with brand new public art projects and retail experiences.
The Peanuts Global Artist Collective is comprised of André Saraiva x Mr. A, Nina Chanel Abney, AVAF, FriendsWithYou, Tomokazu Matsuyama, Rob Pruitt, and Kenny Scharf.
