Pesipop meets Goal for Artprize Project

Underwriting support from:

Recently my husband, Scott Warren, interviewed Artist Anthony Pesi regarding his latest project, “1024 bits of you and me”.   Pesi’s works are usually small scale, this concept where he generates a collection of 1,024 tiles assembled  into one large comprehensive design is an ambitious endeavor for him – for any artist. To top it all off, he is also publishing a book composed of the individual works.  Pesi mentioned he thought it would be difficult to come up with 1024 words on his own. That is how he came up with the idea of collaboration.  Each sponsor has the right to name a tile with a word or phrase that will be the subject of the tile. Once the project is completed, patrons will receive the individual tile that they funded as a reward for their sponsorship.  .Each 5”x 5” tile is a unique piece of art, when viewed from a distance, the series of panels will create a 35 foot long installation.

As a project available for funding on, Pesi’s “1024 bits of you and me” is an “all or nothing” endeavor. Which means that if his project fails to obtain 100% or more of the requested funding, no funding at all will be generated.  I am happy to announce that as of today Pesipop 1024 bits of you and me his 111% funded!   Pesi will be using this project to facilitate his entry into ArtPrize 2010. As Pesi explained it to Scott and I, “To compete in ArtPrize, I had to find a way to draw more attention to what it is that I do. Most of the ArtPrize entries are on a much grander scale as far as size is concerned. What I do with these small little paintings would get lost in the shuffle”.   With a more gargantuan scale of over 8 feet high, and more than 32 feet long, “1024 bits of you and will definitely NOT get lost in the shuffle.
Its not too late to be a part of something really big – literally.   Pesi has more tiles for sale.
