Born in Nottinghamshire in 1967, Peter Smith’s early working life followed a traditional path. He worked as a surveyor and later a computer programmer before entering the world of fashion as a graphic designer. Here he collaborated with such names as Disney, Lucas Films, Fox and Universal.
This reignited Peter’s passion for art and his first limited edition print was released in 2003. In 2005 he approached and was signed up by Washington Green Fine Art and his career took off.
Peter takes inspiration from ordinary, everyday life and combines this with emotion and humour to create boldly coloured, quirky, surreal images at which you can’t help but smile.
"The Impossimals" were created in 2002 and now have worldwide appeal. The characters can be found as original oil paintings, limited editiion prints as well as sculptures.
