Jo Peel 'In the Mean Time'

This really interesting animation created on the wall of Village Underground popped up on our radar recently. Entitled ‘Things Change’ and painted over 3 weeks by the talented Jo Peel, this is an insightful commentary on the construction and in turn decay, of our urban landscape.

If you like what you see there is now a chance to see some static work from her as her solo exhibition ‘IN THE MEAN TIME’ opens at the Ben Oakley Gallery in Greenwich on the 15th June. On show will be a new set of work on canvas and there will also be a limited edition print release by Jo on the evening of the private view.

Well worth checking out!
