Conversations In Creativity: Pete Fowler (Artist/Designer)

with Dave Haslam (Author & Journalist)

Time & Date: 7pm, Wednesday 30th January

in association with D&AD & Blueprint Magazine

Born in Cardiff, living in London

For Creative Lancashire's first presentation of 2013, we present an insight into the world of Pete Fowler. Pete's art has roamed in the fields of music, illustration, toy design, print making, painting, commercial clients and more recently, cross stitch embroidery. The event coincides with a major exhibition of his work, both new and old, at the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff. The homecoming exhibition runs until the end of February (2013). Some of his most recognisable images have been for the Super Furry Animals' albums, videos, merchandise and giant inflatable bears. His various Monsterism creations have spanned toy figures, apparel, CDs, stationary and more, gaining a world wide fan base: www.monsterism.net

This week Pete discussed  his work & inspirations with Steve Lamacq (BBC 6 Music)

As well as digital artwork he exhibits his original artwork in various galleries and spaces and currently has his first solo show for 4 years at the Wales Millennium Centre, running until the end of February 2013. Other exhibitions are planned for 2013 including a solo show at Beach in east London in August.

Recent projects have included designing 2 one off synthesisers for XL records, a Christmas campaign for O2 and a toy figure with the legendary British comic 2000AD

Aside from his artwork Pete is one half of the cosmic smooth rock/deckshoe gaze music duo Seahawks, releasing music prolifically since 2010 and continuing to plot a similar course in 2013 with various remixes, records and CDs alongside DJing.

The conversation and Q&A will be chaired by Dave Haslam (Author, Journalist & DJ)
