Peter Taylor is another previously unknown artist who suddenly, as if out of the ground, appeared on the horizon with his wonderfulNSmi and unique drawings. Unique because hardly anyone else would think of depicting ridiculous fat men on paper, resembling long fat caterpillars … Peter is 30 years old, he lives and works in Vancouver, where, in fact, he draws with pencils, paint and spray cans for graffiti some and the same plump worm-like men. Which cannot be looked at indifferently - they either like madly, or cause disgust, and in some cases - fear.
However, the author puts a special meaning in his fat men. He calls them his personal sages, and their incredible twisted postures symbolize "the germination of seeds of knowledge, wisdom and understanding."
Very soon, on June 13, Peter Taylor will open a solo exhibition in Vancouver. We won't get there … And does it make sense if his fat caterpillars can be viewed online at HandmadeFeat.com.
