The popular Sheffield artist is back and tells City Mag he is energised by the current political climate
Popular Sheffield artist Peter McKee has been having a tough time recently, what with the liver transplant and the subsequent long road to recovery.
But now he’s back with a new exhibition exploring the roots and role of the working class.
This Class Works will be on at Burton Road between 14 and 29 July and in the latest edition of City Mag, Pete tells editor Richard Abbey about the motivation behind the new work.
He’s promising his trademark humour, but with more edge than usual.
“This show will be definitely more pointed than my past exhibitions, though I’ll still be having my tongue firmly in my cheek in places. I’m very passionate about my roots and hate seeing what is happening to my class in this current political climate,” he says.
To celebrate his return, we've put Pete's image, Old Cobble Nose, on the cover of June's City Mag.
