Sam has worked on several collections over the years and has solo showed in Berlin, Sydney, and London with several more shows planned into 2018. Recently he undertook a 6-month project focusing on the effects of Hydraulic Fracturing within the UK and gave an artist’s response in the form of 52 separate images, each titled with a place name where planned fracking was to take place. He has also completed a major installation for the Novotel, Canary Wharf, in London and an installation of three-dimensional metal ‘bullet casings’ entitled Into the Abysswhich represents a response to global warming.
The shells used are made out of brass and in fact are recycled artillery shells, along to steel shells fabricated to look like silos. These were predominantly brass sculptures made using coffee and oils.
Sam’s upcoming exhibition: “OF THE LAND” solo show at Curious Duke Gallery on the 3rd of May 2018, where he will present his new collection of works which touch base with the coast, the woods, ancient pathways, hills, trees and all the natural elements.
Roy Tyson is an award-winning urban artist combining miniature figures, photography and the streets to create a miniature world beneath our feet.
Roy took inspiration from the current urban art scene and headed to the dirty streets of London to photograph and capture his work permanently.
He’s fascinated by the multitude of aspects the subjects can achieve, setting about creating situations in a miniature world that reflect on our surroundings, feelings and emotions.
Each figure is carefully adapted from its original form, allowing Roy to create anything he desires. The little people are then taken to the street to get the perfect vibe for us all to enjoy.
Roy is also the founder of Roy’s People Art Fair with Sam Peacock. Over the last 5 years, Roy and Sam have been working as professional artists. During that time they have exhibited nationally and internationally whilst experiencing art fairs and going through the emotions of applying and exhibiting and Roy decided that the next logical step would be to create the Roy’s People Art Fair. He has joined forces with Sam to add more artistic experience and knowledge to make the shows as successful as possible.
Roy and Sam state that the aim of the fair is to give artists an alternative platform to present their work whilst also creating a unique art fair experience for visitors allowing them to interact with the artists and buy artwork directly from them. At each of their fairs, people will discover original affordable artwork from a wide variety of artists carefully selected based on quality and talent.
Last year the inaugural event drew thousands to the to take part in the first ever artist-led art
fair, pioneered by artists Sam Peacock and Roy Tyson. 80 carefully selected artists will be
personally showcasing their pieces to the public during this free four-day event.
