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 has created a number of short animated films based upon huge wall murals which she painstakingly paints and repaints for each frame in a time-lapse process which may take three or four weeks for a 3 minute edit. Her “Things Change” short film painted on the Village Underground Wall in Shoreditch, London was shortlisted for best animation as part of the 2012 programme at Encounters Short film and Animation festival and went on to become an Vimeo online sensation with over 100,000 views.
