There is just over a week to go till the launch of Pete’s latest collection ’10 Now and Then’. To celebrate Pete’s 10th year as an artist he has recreated 10 of his favourite images as very limited edition screen prints. Each has had a McKee face lift and all have been hand printed by B and B gallery in Pete’s home city of Sheffield.
Each print has been produced on a different paper making each edition unique. One of the prints ‘Arctic Penguins’ also features a collaboration with fellow Sheffield based artist Kid Acne who has changed the wording on Pete’s sign to his own distinctive style. Only 10 of each print will be available all signed and numbered by Pete.
Here is what Pete said about the collection:
The last 10 years have been quite an adventure, sometimes brilliant, occasionally challenging but overall incredible. It's been great to look back and reflect on my little triumphs and gaze proudly at the response my work gets from those who choose to have it as part of their lives, be it on a wall in the house, a book on the shelf or as a useful ornament.
The 10 Now and Then collection is a visual celebration of those 10 years and the people I've been very lucky to meet and work with. Also in the collection are images that hold a special place in my back catalogue and have become personal favourites for myself and others.
As someone who loves the joy that nostalgia brings, its been great to take the opportunity to produce something uniquely special that will stand as a fitting tribute to some of my favourite paintings and collaborations.
The prints go on sale from a Month of Sundays Gallery at 10am on Saturday 27 June. We will be throwing a little party on the day with food, a few drinks and Pete will be on hand to answer any questions you have about the work.
We have made a short film about the process of printing and why Pete chose the images he did for this exhibition. You can watch this online here.
