A RENOWNED artist will be bringing his new exhibition to a gallery.

Pete McKee, painter and cartoonist, will open a new pop-up gallery at Onca, in St George’s Place, Brighton, from June 14 to 18.

It will be the first time McKee has displayed work in Brighton for more than a decade.

After the visit to Brighton, Pete will be taking the gallery to Birmingham and Nottingham.

The pop-up galleries are an exciting opportunity to see a selection of his work, selected for these events, showing the diversity of his witty and charming images.

The tour coincides with the release of Pete’s new book, Council Skies, a collection of his work over the last 15 years, from his early sketch work through to images from his most recent exhibitions.

Pete will also be doing an in-store signing at the Brighton pop-up from 4pm to 6pm Saturday, June 15.

And despite having not shown his work in the city for more than ten years, Pete said Brighton was the perfect place to kick off the pop-up tour.

He said: “Anyone who has flirted with the concept of modernism, as I did as a teenager in the late Seventies, can’t help but fall in love with Brighton and the role it played in our cultural imagination.

“When you walk down the seafront you get a sense of the history that it holds and its representation in cult films like Quadrophenia.

“Brighton is home to some amazing artists and art institutions too so I can’t wait to bring my work there.”

Entry to the gallery is free.
