Peter McLane Digital Art 25-Year Anniversary Exhibition

French-born digital fine artist Peter Mc Lane is commemorating 25 years of
digital creation and is celebrating by holding an exhibition of his works in
London for the very first time. Mc Lane is considered one of the early
pioneers of digital art and is also a formally trained, traditional painter.
The traditional, however, was not something Peter ever ventured into.

‘To me, the move from painting on canvas to painting on screen felt as
natural and innovative as it must have felt to go from walls to canvas. I
discovered you could paint on a computer whilst playing with an ATARI in a
recording studio some 25 years ago, during a former life as a singer. I
entered a magical world where nature unselfishly provided me with the most
magnificent colour palette and I was given absolute freedom. This was a true
revelation. If the greatest painters across time had had these tools at
their disposition, they would have been able to express themselves at a much
higher level.

The rest is in your imagination. Having a computer paint programme will not
make you an artist, you still have to paint the picture, there are no
shortcuts there; although, you do have a lot of magnificent tools to entice
you to experiment. I have worked with every digital paint programme on the
market since version 1.

Digital technology gave me the means to express my soul and I feel I have
arrived where I wanted to go. If I can now pass that passion on, I will have
been successful at what I set out to do.”

The Peter Mc Lane 25 Year Anniversary Exhibition is being held at the
Lightgallery, 5A Porchester Place, London W2 2BS, from 3 – 17 November 2012.
Free entry; open 09:00 – 21:00 every day. Open days with Peter are on 7, 8
and 9 November 14:00 – 21:00
