Pete McKee opened his first Art Gallery in his home town of Sheffield. The gallery 'A Month Of Sundays' is a vessel for him to continue to spread the word of his work, work that has already reached such individuals as clothes designer Paul Smith, who asked Pete to decorate a scooter, which was the centre piece for his London store and also Oasis' Noel Gallagher who asked him to decorate a 10 foot tall Gibson guitar for the Gibson Guitar Town Exhibition in 2007. Along with providing a number of poster designs for the massive Oasis outdoor summer shows in 2009, Pete provided prints for both of Noel's two night residency at The Royal Albert Hall in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust earlier this year.
Pete's art career started with his drawings of the then Trevor Francis squad in the long gone Sheffield Wednesday fanzine 'A View From The Eastbank'.
In 2007 he held his first London exhibition entitled 'Lost Weekends' which went on to show in New York.
During his earlier work Pete has covered a wide spectrum of subject matter in his work with heavy Northern influences. Youth Culture seems to be a recurring favourite (Teddy Boys, Mods, Punks, Casuals, and Goths) of the artist, as well as music (Hometown Heroes, The Human League, The Arctic Monkeys, Jarvis Cocker and Richard Hawley as well as The Beatles and the Northern Soul scene) and also some childhood favourites (Park Football, Choppers, Space Invaders, Fairgrounds and Costal Holidays) and least of all BOTH Sheffield Football teams.
