Pete Beckett is a British artist, born and living in Cheshire.
He paints with oil and with acrylic paints and mainly specialises in landscapes.
A variety of approaches, ranging from representative to abstract, are taken. Some recent work has also included figurative, birds, African animals and still-life subjects.
Having travelled extensively, his inspiration comes from many different first-hand sources, always aiming to catch the mood and colour of a place, ideally sparking some special recognition in the mind's eye of the viewer.
During lock-down, Pete enjoyed being part of The Artist's Support Pledge.

Please take a look at the range of paintings created over the last few years in the different galleries of this website.

Artist’s statement:
“Having drawn and painted since my school days, I still find the process of continuing to learn and experiment with paint very exciting.
Each new creation is a completely original experience of capturing an image which evolves and aims to strike a chord. Putting enough paint down to draw the observer into a picture needs to be weighed up with the intention of not over-finishing a piece. In this way, the observer can put their own interpretation on the image and unlock that recognition of a place or situation without nature being copied.”

His paintings are enjoyed by private and corporate collectors in England, Wales, France, Switzerland, Belgium, Cyprus, America, Australia and New Zealand.

He is open to suggestions for any new corporate hanging possibilities.

Some recent paintings will be exhibited at The Sicily Oak Gallery, Cheshire SY14 8HG from 25th April to 5th May. Viewing open daily from 10am to 6pm.
