contemporary artist philip wakelam

I am an English artist living and working mainly in the U.K. but l have fallen in love with the life and atmosphere of South America, especially Buenos Aires in Argentina, often travelling there for inspiration and to paint.

I use my paints to convey my emotions, feelings and thoughts in a everlasting hope and humour that I can communicate with an ever growing audience.

My work allows me to express my feelings and emotions through the use of paint and my pictures are a representation of society through my thoughts and observations. This covers both social and political behaviour and interactions. My paintings also help me to communicate to and with everyone. It is my life, my energy and my love.

For me when I look at art it is so important to understand what motivated and drove the painter to produce that piece of work…. It is as important as the lyrics of a song.
