Pete McKee - Solihull Throstle - 07-12-2018

Just stumbled across an article on this bloke on BBC. Anybody heard of him before? I really like his work.

"Artist Pete McKee on painting Britain's working class in a positive light"

Bit of a patronising headline isn't it?

I thought there was no more working class. We're all middle class now. Except for the dolers of course.

It wasn't a political post, I really just like his work!

That's a contradiction in terms...

Great work and refreshingly well meaning compared to some Guardian media darling artists I could mention.

I've been to see one of his exhibitions in Sheffield

Came home with a couple of his prints even though I vowed to the wife that I wouldn't buy anything before i went in
