A war correspondent who covered the worst conflicts of the 1990s is sharing his experiences through painting.

Now his work can be seen at Surrey Heath Museum in Knoll Road, Camberley.

Kevin Weaver was there when the Berlin Wall fell, during the Romanian revolution, the Velvet revolution in Czechoslovakia and the Croatian and Bosnian wars.

An exhibition running at Surrey Heath Museum until March 16 will be called War & Peace – The Work of War Artist and Landscape Painter, Kevin Weaver.A war correspondent who covered the worst conflicts of the 1990s is sharing his experiences through painting.

He also covered the genocide in Rwanda and Hutu exodus to Zaire, as well as the NATO conflict with Serbia over Kosovo while working as a photographer and journalist freelancing for The Independent, The Guardian, The New Statesmen, and BBC radio among many others.

Mr Weaver is now an artist living and working in Ennerdale on the west coast of Cumbria after being diagnosed with PTSD - due in part to his being shot in Sarajevo in 1992 while covering the war in Bosnia. He uses his nightmares and photographs as starting points for his large oil, wax and silicon paintings and light installations of objects such as backlit Yugoslav money scorpions and crabs embedded in epoxy resin.

Mr Weaver also paints impressionistic landscapes of the Lake District and other spots around the UK including Dumfries and Galloway, Norfolk and Cornwall.

During the War and Peace exhibition there will be a Wall of Peace of these landscapes, as a contrast to the war imagery.

The display will also feature a wall of black and white photographs from the conflicts Mr Weaver has covered and personal items including a bullet he was shot with, his flak jacket and press passes.

The 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War comes at the end of this year.

The museum will be staging The Battles of First World War - an exhibition looking at the local death toll annually during the First World War and the lessons learnt from each battle as the war came to its end.
