The first 7 paintings represent a type of cultural deconstruction. Trying to evolve the art away from conventional to a more distinctive style and create a unique hybrid. Icons, symbols and brands have been combined with a very personal process that challenges how icons are portrayed. My approach is to collide opposites, a bold contrast, creative tensions. My aim is to create passionate confrontation between my intuitive vision and the brand fodder of commercial enterprise.
This is considered a type of brand heresy.
Born in 1969, Peter Winnett developed his art approach early on. Graduating from the NSCAD art university in Halifax in 1993, he currently resides in Yaletown, Vancouver, with international clients in New York, London, San Francisco and elsewhere.
