Pete Jones' prolific output has always shocked art critic and gallery owner Yet most of his work is retained in private ownership, making the few canvases on today’s market highly sought after and crushingly expensive

Trained at Camberwell in the early 80’s Jones turned his back on a promising fine arts career to work in advertising

Despite initial success the politics and restrictions of a corporate work place led to a return to art. Confronted with the chance to say and paint whatever he wanted Jones embraced this art scene. His work has since soared in popularity with buyers and critics alike

Recent work includes the Acrylic painting Hate and the controversial

Atomic Bomb falling on Red Square which is showing as part of our current war exhibition
