Jo Peel

Jo’s A City Less Grey mural depicts personal stories and the wider urban context of Leeds’ transformation as a city past, present and future running the length of one of the hoardings facing onto the central park in Sovereign Square.

Artist Bio:

Jo Peel spends her time documenting in great detail her fascination with everyday scenes and scenarios. From abandoned east London construction sites to the streets of Tokyo and Pittsburgh, all are captured in her well observed and uniquely executed style.

By drawing, Peel offers her view that it is these cityscapes that are as important to the topographic psyche as the natural beauty of the nature that surrounds it. This is not finding beauty in the dust; this is offering a new language to understand what is beautiful.

This exploration of the urban metamorphosis is executed in a variety of mediums ranging from huge public murals and hand painted animations to canvas and fine art editions.

Jo Peel has been commissioned to paint interior and exterior wall murals for councils, private and corporate clients across the UK and internationally including: Bahia, Brazil. Tokyo, Japan. Auckland, New Zealand. Bali, Indonesia. Wroclaw, Poland.
