Pete Wheeler is an artist and painter who lays his ideas bare on the canvas.
His work defies classification but is recognisable for its recurring themes and portrayal of death, religion and politics. Weaving together unexpected combinations of imagery, Pete creates creative dissonance, disjunction and discord. His striking work often appears to engage with current social issues, but stops short of being specific; Pete creates artworks that are forever in the moment, both current and eternal.
Pete uses a range of painting techniques and mediums including glitter, pigment, rabbit skin glue, oil stick and oil paint on the reverse of primed linen or canvas. His use of these and photo emulsion are akin to techniques used by Francis Bacon.
