The artist of this work is Peter Dworok (b. 1950).
He was born in Nottingham and studied art at Nottingham College of Art and Design and then at Leeds Polytechnic Faculty of Art and Design.
After leaving college Peter lived and worked on the Isle of Skye and later Edinburgh where he exhibited his work widely. On moving back to Nottinghamshire, Peter was employed by Nottinghamshire County Council helping to establish Rufford Craft Centre as a center for excellence in the applied arts.
Peter retired from his role at Rufford after working there for some 25 years and has recently moved to the beautiful Minster town of Southwell where he continues to paint and show his work.
His more recent works are stylistically very far removed from these early figurative sketches. Indeed, his recent paintings are more traditional works that often feature atmospheric Highland landscapes and scenes on the Isle of Skye. All his work continues to this day to show his interest in intricately rendered textured surfaces. They are highly sought after and fetch sums in the high hundreds when they come up for sale at his contemporary exhibitions.
I have three early 1970s works by this listed artist in my Iconic Edinburgh online shop - they are all are rare early pen and ink drawings made by Dworok when he was living in Edinburgh in the 1970s.
They are all certainly very rare survivors from this period, and in themselves are all very interesting studies.
Each of these finely executed pen and ink studies all have a dreamlike, surrealist quality to them - and are skilled works full of minute attention to detail - you certainly would not get bored of these lovely original drawings - and indeed, you might never be completely sure of what the artist is illustrating in these strange studies.
Signed and dated 1976, as photographed.
The is the second, and largest, of four rare early works by Peter Dworok for sale at Iconic Edinburgh (only three left - one has been sold).
This is a rather strange dream-like image carefully delineated in pen and ink.
It was drawn by the artist when he was living in Edinburgh in the 1970s.
In good condition with no conservation issues - ready to hang on your wall. Any out of place white flashes etc on my photographs here are just reflections as I had to photograph the drawings through the glass - and it was a bit fiddly. But the drawing is just all fine and dandy.
