Mike Wilks: The Ultimate Alphabet: The Letter P

$29.99 CAD

Mike Wilks (British, b. 1947) The Letter P, 1984 From The Ultimate Alphabet 

"Behold a picture of pictures," muses Mike Wilks, the creative genius behind this artistic creation.  Within this visual tapestry, discover a painter in profile adorned in P's, wielding a palette charged with fitting colours.  Observe a patchwork quilt adorned with pertinent hues, a pineapple, a pestle, a press surrounded by proofs (can you locate the image?), a partially painted panda, and a plethora of pargeting in suitable material.  Amidst this visual feast, spot a paperback publication and plenty of patterns awaiting your perspective.

Derived from the renowned book The Ultimate Alphabet, The Letter P stands as one of Wilks's most challenging and intricate compositions.  Can you uncover all the P words artfully depicted in this 1,000-piece puzzle?  If not, fear not – a comprehensive list and key are conveniently included inside to guide you through the exploration.

The artistry of Mike Wilks is characterized by intensely realistic, sometimes surrealistic, detail – a blend of art appreciation and a game of discovery in one.  Wilks embarked on his artistic journey at the age of 13, winning a scholarship to art school.  After running a successful graphic design business for five years, he shifted gears in 1975, transitioning to writing and illustrating books.  His ascent to fame came with the publication of The Ultimate Alphabet in 1986, a global bestseller featuring images brimming with items, all starting with the same letter of the alphabet.

Following eight illustrated books, Wilks established himself as a novelist with The Mirrorscape Trilogy, a captivating fantasy adventure series.  The subject of an award-winning British documentary, Wilks currently resides in London, and his drawings and paintings grace museums, galleries, and private collections worldwide.
