Pete creates his work by recycling used postage stamps into pixelated images. Each stamp represents a pixel. By choosing the every day objects of postage stamps and placing them so that their usual significance becomes obscure enables the audience to see 'Art' with new eyes. He is best known for his portraits but he also creates a variety of other images from stamps.

Vivienne Westwood Tribute to Leete Tribute To Bridget Riley
 Vivienne Westwood is truly inspiring.

  
From Pop culture to cutting edge couture she is at the forefront of British quality, workmanship and creativity.
 In this portrait which is made from over 4000 used postage stamps there is a Union Jack in the background, red to the left, blue to the right, torn asunder by the fluorescent orange of her hair cut zigzag into the stamps for an ebullient punk effect. The softer more delicate 1950/1960s stamps are evocative of the delicacy of some of the fabric styles and the subtitle ‘Seasons’ comes through the inclusion of the slashes of fabric showing stamps representing spring, summer, autumn and winter.
Commemorating one hundred years since the start of the First World War



This iconic image created from over 3000 postage stamps commemorates one hundred years since the start of World War 1. The recruitment poster of Lord Kitchener was first designed by Alfred Leete in 1914 and has been greatly used in advertising ever since. This canvas uses cool colours against the warm reds of the stylised poppies in the background creating a never ending link between the poppy fields and the Great War.
Optical Art in Stamps

This tribute to Bridget Riley is created from over 3000 used postage stamps and is based on a detail from a 1961 picture entitled ‘Movement in Squares’- one of the best known iconic early works. Her designs call for a response from her audience. Her work ‘Op (Optical) Art’ as it became known was based on a black and white palette creating intense optical disturbances when stared at for a while without blinking. Her style, working slowly and methodically suits Pete’s stamp art using simple elements such as the oval, curve, square and even zigzag ~ her achievement however is massive scale which one day Pete wishes to emulate given the right future commission.
