Artist Jo Peel is a painter, printmaker, animator, film maker and a rising star of the UK contemporary art movement. Born in Sheffield and armed with a BA Hons degree in Illustration from Falmouth Art College, Jo progressed through a variety of art and design based projects before becoming a commissioned and exhibited artist in her own right from 2008.

Jo’s work is rooted in a poetic urban architecture, capturing intimate elements of the city landscape at moments which could be recent history or perhaps a post-apocalyptic future. Locations are familiar yet decayed, the desolation generally heightened by man’s absence.

In November 2014, she spent a 3 week visit to Japan exploring and taking inspiration from the environment, then painted a piece representing her own unique vision on the landscape on the exterior walls of the UltraSuperNew Gallery. The work is on long term exhibit on the exterior walls of the gallery.
