Peter Drew 'All you need is LIKE'
Drew's work plays with our sense of anachronism by placing historic iconography in a contemporary context or style. A notable example was Drew's recent project presenting criminal mug shots from the 1920s as larger than life, public portraits. For All you need is LIKE these criminals are brought into the gallery within the gilded frames of their era. History is also present in Drew's series of pixelated nudes which present the forms of classicism and early modernism in a contemporary style. Drew will be exhibiting at the Art Gallery of South Australia for SA Illustrated: From the Street this June before traveling to the UK to undertake a Master's degree in Writing and Criticism at the Glasgow School of Art from August. AP Bond Gallery is proud to present the work of the unique South Australian artist.
