Peter Wilkin

Most of Peter Wilkin's images begin life as a photograph taken with his iPhone. All subsequent artwork is carried out on iPad, where the photograph is edited and gradually transformed using digital paint brushes. Peter's inspiration usually comes from song lyrics, a piece of poetry or a work of art, although it is sometimes generated by an issue that he feels passionate about. Whilst the process itself is quite technical, it is balanced by periods of unconscious creativity; "best described, perhaps, as a willingness to hand over the ‘brushes’ to my inner child. In these interludes of free play his imagination runs riot & the art becomes a fusion of honesty, curiosity & adventure". The finished piece is a visual representation of his understanding & interpretation of the subject matter.
