Georgia Peskett

I am a London-born artist based near to Sheffield.

I began painting during a three year apprenticeship in New York where I spent time painting and working alongside many contemporaries of the hugely influential late Jean-Michel Basquiat. Painting New York cityscapes and figurative urban landscapes, later returning to London where I still draw much of my inspiration, from commuters underground to the ubiquitous facades that surround us daily.

I have been included in many group shows and solo exhibitions in the UK and Internationally. My works are held in public, private and corporate collections in the UK, Hong Kong, US, Australia, Norway, Switzerland, Sweden, Singapore, France and Germany.
