It was in 1996 when Philip Mckay entered the world of digital art. He has taken part in exhibitions all over the world, doing interviews in magazines, creating art for book covers for famous authors and winning awards globally.
Philip Mckay was creating art all the time but never had any real direction until he discovered the art of Rene Magritte and Storm Thorgerson.
When Philip saw the artworks of these two artists it was then that he decided what style and medium of art he wanted to create – surrealism and scenes of idiotic places.
Rene Magritte is a Belgian surrealist artist – born in 1898 died 1967.
Storm Thorgerson was an English graphic designer best known for his album artwork mainly designing Pink Floyd album covers.
Philip Mckay is really proud of what he’s achieved with his art describing his experience in the art world as a fantastic journey. Although it has been a struggle with so many setbacks, he just kept going and never gives up.
