About the Non-Violence Art Project

Swedish artist Carl Fredrik Reuterswärd created the bronze sculpture "Non-Violence" in 1985 as an homage to John Lennon, who was shot in New York in December of 1980. This sculpture, a gun disarmed, now stands in 16 places around the world as a symbol of peace and non-violence.

The non-profit organization Non-Violence Project Foundation has made its goal to promote world peace through educational initiatives. As part of the Non-Violence Art Project, world-famous personalities such as Yoko Ono and Muhammad Ali create their own versions of the knotted-barrel revolver. A portion of the proceeds from these sculptures benefits the initiative.

About Yoko Ono

Yoko Ono’s art has always had a political bent. Her film Bottoms (1966), showed 365 bare backsides in a protest against the Vietnam War. A few years later in her performance Cut Piece, she sat motionless onstage while the audience cut small pieces off her clothes. Without words, the artist posed essential questions about the relationship between the artist and the viewer, about the objectification of the female form, and about cultural identity.

For decades, Yoko Ono has been an advocate for human rights and equality. To this day, she is still engaged in the constant struggle for world peace.

For her sky blue sculpture for the Non-Violence Art Project, Ono found inspiration in John Lennon’s song “Imagine”. “John and I were and are devoted to the idea that global peace is a realistic objective,” she says. “The Non-Violence Project is taking that vision through into the 21st century.”
Yoko Ono grew up in Japan and the USA. In the early 1960s, she established herself as a concept artist. Together with her husband, Beatles singer John Lennon, she grew to international startdom as an artist, filmmaker, and singer. To this day, Yoko Ono is one of the most significant figures in the Fluxus movement.
