London based collage artist, Peter Clark, is widely known for his whimsical collage art. He uses a collection of found papers, which are coloured, patterned, or textured by their printed, written or worn surfaces. He shades with density of print and creates substance and movement with lines plucked from old maps, or manuscripts.
His pieces use mark making in an innovative and humorous way to create his subjects. From animals created from maps, labels, and discarded tickets, to garments carefully crafted from gift wrapping, musical scores and love letters, Peter Clark has the rare ability to turn ordinary printed matter into exquisite works of art with character, beauty, and wit.
