Friday 30 April saw the launch in Sheffield of Pete McKee"s latest exhibition "Teenage Kicks". An over-subscribed crowd of 300 were given the viewing pleasure of the paintings Pete did for Paul Smiths store in Tokyo and here they were on show and for sale for the first time in the UK.
As the title suggests all of the works are youth inspired with all teenage genres covered from the Teddy Boy era through to the Beatles, Mod, Ska, Skins, Bowie, Casuals and New Romantics. Our favourite being the 80s Casuals inspired "Saturday Lads".
Theres a fantastic Limited Edition book covering all the paintings in the exhibition. Although it's £110 I believe in years to come it will be a collectable piece and could only go up in value. http://www.therealmckee.co.uk/
