Peter Smith has a great understanding of form and colour when fused with contemporary living. The imagery provides a powerful visual art to suit all tastes. Created using oils, Peter's work is painted over a four week period to produce canvas versions of his numerous illustrations and sketches.
Peter Smith was born in the small town of Mansfield, Nottinghamshire and bypassed the typical route to the local industries to follow the unusual lifestyle of an artist. Before taking the full time job as an artist, Peter Smith experienced different jobs as a surveyor, a computer programmer and eventually a graphic artist within the fashion industry, a job he enjoyed for 16 years. He has spent the last few years increasing his presence within the art world and honing his skills to the standard of art work you now see before you.
Peter Smith creates wonderful imaginary creatures that fuse together fun childhood memories, children's books, history and events to make artwork that brings a smile to your face. One of the most well know creations is the Impossimals who appear as striped rounded creatures combined with everyday objects in bright and colourful paintings.
