Pete McKee

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.

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

We are lovers of Frank the wistful whippet
