About
Famous Fantasy Art

“My Famous Fantasy Collection is created as a source of pure enjoyment and entertainment, wrapped in a little whimsy and humor.

 

My Fantasy art is about being bold, interesting and engaging....with some of our most recognized historical and iconic people and their well-recognized faces, juxtaposed into unusual life-scenarios.” – Peter Ashworth

 

Famous people are typically instantly recognizable, but my creative, imaginary, large canvas life moments are designed to challenge the brain and logic norms with a scenario that will make you smile.

This Collection of art is painted on a large scale. It is very unique, and designed to be collected. My bold, high-color pieces will create a definite conversation piece and will enlighten and uplift your home or office. 

 

I believe fantasy art allows us to escape from the real world and immerse ourselves in a different world with its own rules, laws, and possibilities. This can be a refreshing break from the monotony of everyday life and provide an opportunity for adventure and exploration.

 

Fantasy allows us to explore complex and abstract ideas in a more concrete and relatable way. For example, stories set in fantastical worlds may use magical elements to represent human emotions or societal issues. This can help readers or viewers to better understand and process these concepts.

 

My Famous Fantasy Collection contains themes of heroism, bravery, and triumph over evil. The common theme of my Famous Fantasy Collection is the overwhelming level of accomplishments, talents, and recognizable achievements of  famous people. I believe people are motivated and inspired by successful people. This Collection will create inspiration in their success stories and energy in their presence in your home.

 

I work hard to capture the essence of the individual, wrapped into a possibility that while it might seem impossible, seems almost plausible. My hope is that this collection will be inspiring and uplifting, and provide a sense of hope and optimism in a world that can often feel overwhelming and uncertain.

 

My Fantasy art allows me to explore new ideas and concepts, and tune into the feelings of the iconic celebrity status, and the social, innovative, political, and pressing issues of the times, to enable the experience to connect with broader celebrity innovators and cultural issues, to explore our place relative to them.

GEORGE WASHINGTON ROCKS by Peter Ashworth

EINSTEIN IN SPACE by Peter Ashworth

SERIES INSPIRATION;  People want an association with famous. They also want to feel whimsy and lightness, with a sense of positive social interaction. I have always followed people who serve others and who use their unique talents to lift others up and to make the world a better place. I look towards positive role models,... and in a world of off-the-charts multi-tasking, anxiety and overload, I believe a combination of celebrity with whimsy offers the viewer a brief pause form the daily grind....to improve mood, reduce stress, and increase overall well-being. My Famous Fantasy art is inspired by the need to spark imagination, to give you something exciting in your home that makes a big statement, that changes a room to be interesting and significant,...and to help you to live more creatively. 

ABOUT THE SERIES; My Famous Fantasy Collection is inspired deeply from my heart. I spend considerable time thinking about people and fantasy scenarios, and I have a wellspring of ideas every day, and a list of over 300 famous people and celebrities, both historical and current, I plan to paint over the coming years.  This Collection is painted from my creative mind. I see it as big and bold, a huge conversation piece, with powerful colors, bold brush strokes, and a looseness of form, while maintaining strong elements of appealing human-centered design and fantasy that are interesting to the eye. This abstract collection is created to feel deeply personal, highly original, and meaningful to viewers, engaging them to connect with the artwork on a deep level. 

WHAT 'IS' FAMOUS FANTASY ART?; It is art that percolates inside my mind, iconic people and fantasy scenarios. It is designed to make you think, to take a double-take, and to make the viewer smile and feel uplifted. Each piece is carefully designed to emphasize bold color, unique subject matter, and large scale engagement...a complement to a wall space.  I want people to experience my art on a visceral level, to encourage deep thinking, engagement, and mental connection, with sheer delight. 

WHAT IS 'UNIQUE' ABOUT MY FAMOUS FANTASY ART?; This Collection is highly unique. There is very little art like this anywhere. It is created to be experienced, not just a painting of an experience, but to create the experience itself. Through my 30+ years of corporate design and my years as an artist, I have developed a keen understanding of what the human brain prefers in design and style, something that is able to manifest itself onto my canvas through my creative thinking and my techniques, honed over many years. The ideas for these art pieces come after many, many hours of thinking and concepting the ideas of combining an iconic person whom I believe has contributed to humanity - with a fantasy scenario that somehow fits their persona. I then develop the design concept with pencil drawings, and sometimes Adobe Photoshop where I build a color creative concept. These art pieces are big, so take many hours, typically over 100 hours to complete. I typically use many, many layers, and multiple contrasting colors to create a combination of thought-provoking engagement and meaningful intrinsic design. This collection is large scale to create a real impact, a statement, and a larger-than-life personality to add to your room.

HOW MY FAMOUS FANTASY ART WILL ENHANCE YOUR HOME... AND YOUR LIFE; My art is created to give energy and life to your home. This Collection will give you an exciting, engaging and vibrant art piece, and is built to help you live your best creative life. I believe that color can manifest harmony, healing and dreams. The universe is energy at different frequencies. Love is the highest. Each color also has a different frequency, that can manifest your highest dreams and goals, incorporating the high-frequency colors of the universe and of our chakras. My art incorporates colors that will build a foundation of the uplifting energy of love and vibrancy to your home.

ART:

'George Washington Rocks.'

COLLECTION / SERIES:

Famous Fantasy Collection.

INSPIRATION:

This art piece is magnificent. It is big, bold and engaging. George Washington, widely regarded as a hero and an important figure in American history, is one of the most recognized faces in America, and much of the world. He holds historical significance as Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army where his leadership was instrumental in securing victory against the British, and his military tactics are still studied today. He was the first President of the United States serving from 1789 to 1797, he has a legacy as a leader and statesman, and his leadership helped shape the newly formed nation of The United States. While there are controversies associated with George Washington's legacy (slave ownership, treatment of indigenous people, Jay Treaty), he remains an important and influential figure in American history. Understanding the complexities of his legacy can help us better understand the challenges and opportunities that faced the young nation he helped to establish. I saw him as an iconic person, and imagined him in our modern times today as an entertainer and influencer. I put him in a faux military entertainers jacket similar to Michael Jackson, and had him wearing noise canceling headphones as a music or athletic afficiando. I put him in front of a celebrity wall, sporting a personalized variation (GW vs LV) on the Louis Vuitton logo, to comingle the idea of fame and a high-end brand in today's world.

'Einstein in Space'

COLLECTION / SERIES:

Famous Fantasy Collection.

INSPIRATION:

I VERY MUCH ADMIRE ALBERT EINSTEIN. Albert Einstein was one of the most significant figures in the history of science, his work transformed our understanding of the physical world and laid the foundation for many of the scientific advances of the 20th century. Einstein was an average student, but one of the most brilliant thinkers in human history. He developed much of our human understanding of the world today, including The Theory of Relativity; our understanding of space, time, and gravity, while his very famous Mass-Energy Equivalence (E=mc²) demonstrated that mass and energy are interchangeable, providing a fundamental insight into the nature of matter and energy. His Quantum Theory work on the photoelectric effect and the wave-particle duality of light contributed significantly to the development of quantum theory, for which he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1921. I wanted to create a bold art piece that put him in space...the vast, three-dimensional expanse in which all celestial bodies, such as stars, planets, asteroids, comets, and galaxies, exist and interact with each other, and where Einstein's many theories are still applicable. I am also fascinated by space, a fascinating and mysterious place that continues to captivate the imagination of all mankind.

ART:

'Elton John Quack Rock' - CURRENTLY IN WORKING CONCEPT 

COLLECTION / SERIES:

Famous Fantasy Collection

INSPIRATION:

Elton John is one of the greatest entertainers of our time. His immense talent as a musician and performer, his longevity and success in the music industry, and his unique and flamboyant style have given us some of the greatest music ever. Elton John's music has stood the test of time and has resonated with audiences for over five decades. He has released numerous hit songs and albums, including "Rocket Man," "Tiny Dancer," "Bennie and the Jets," and "Candle in the Wind," which have become timeless classics. In addition his Elton John expresses his creativity with his extravagant and flamboyant stage presence and iconic costumes, sunglasses, and extravagant performances. I love that he has always been unapologetically himself, breaking down barriers and inspiring others to do the same. I wanted to show the most creative side of Elton John, so painted him in what I consider his most extravagant and humorous outfit....which makes me smaile every time I see it....including throughout the creation of this large, generous and highly engaging art piece.

'Queen Halle Berry' 

ART:

'Queen Halle Berry' - CURRENTLY IN WORKING CONCEPT 

COLLECTION / SERIES:

Famous Fantasy Collection

INSPIRATION:

Halle Berry's beauty and style have also made her an iconic figure in popular culture, with many magazines naming her one of the most beautiful women in the world. She has also used her platform to advocate for important causes, such as domestic violence and diabetes awareness, further solidifying her status as an icon. Her talent as an actress, her versatility and range, her trailblazing status as one of the few African American women to win an Academy Award for Best Actress, and her role as a cultural symbol of empowerment and strength for women make her one of the best. In addition to her acting career, she has also been a trailblazer for African American women in Hollywood, breaking down barriers and paving the way for future generations. I have always admired Halle Berry, both as a cultural icon, and as a talented and generous person. I wanted to bring out her presence and her beauty in this highly engaging art piece, and believe her eyes and face are legendary, so featured these as the centerpiece. I wanted to show her frozen in a moment of stunning beauty, her face encapsulated by her hands, with tiny lights to highlight her one-of-a-kind face. Her eyes will follow you around the room as you move, and be assured, this piece on your wall will create a powerful energy and feeling of intense love... forever.
