Pete Monaghan is a contemporary artist specialising in the vernacular architecture of Wales and the Celtic fringes. He fuses techniques gleaned from a background in (technical) illustration with mixed-media and graffiti influences resulting in work that celebrates the beauty and dignity of humble buildings. The art critic Peter Wakelin refers his work as being “all crinkly tin and telegraph poles”.
Historically Robert Rauschenberg and the American abstract expressionists for their energy (mainly), John Piper for his linework, Joan Eardley for her visceral work, Leonardo da Vinci for his technical studies in particular, Jean-Michel Basquiat for his attitude. I look at a lot of contemporary artists including graffiti and urban artists but especially admire the work of painters such as Anna King, Lucy Jones, David Tress, Ian R. Pearsall, Hughie O’Donoghue, Ffiona Lewis, an eclectic bunch!”
