Mike Wilks The Letter S – 1000 Piece Puzzle
As a teenager I spent many hours thoroughly absorbed in Mike Wilks Ultimate Alphabet book, so adding the puzzle Mike Wilks The Letter S to our range of puzzles was a natural choice. Mike creates incredibly detailed works of art, usually around a theme (in this puzzle the letter ‘S’), and encourages you to search for items in the detail hidden within. Studying fine art through a jigsaw is a fantastic way to learn about a painting. It helps you to look at the detail that you might otherwise have missed, and you can study the way the artist has worked with the medium in very close detail. Mike’s work is so clever; there might be literally hundreds of references to the letter S in this puzzle, but how many can you find? A true puzzle within a puzzle!
About the Artist Mike Wilks
Mike was born in London and studied art from the age of 13. First at junior art school then at Croydon College of Art where he studied graphic design.
After graduating in 1967 Mike worked as a graphic designer for various design groups and agencies until in 1970. He then became a founding partner of his own design company. TWD was based in Covent Garden, London, where he and his team designed work for many blue-chip clients. Five years later and on the back of great success I resigned to pursue my love of painting and drawing.
Today Mike’s paintings and drawings can be found in public and private collections in Europe and the USA and he continues to work hard creating new paintings and drawings in his studio-pub. Mike hopes you enjoy looking at his images and reading my words as much as he enjoyed making them.
