Jo Holdsworth is a London-based artist who grew up in Manchester. Working primarily in oil, Jo often paints figures within crowded urban city scenes. Her figures are often rather strange and faceless these figures are purposely painted half-real and the paintings are intended to show modern urban scenes—walking to factories has been replaced by commutes via railway stations and shopping streets while attempting not to bring city specifics to the end image.
Jo was delighted to have been recently voted Royal Arts Prize Visitors’ Choice Award Winner 2019. Jo is also on the judging panel for Young Wimbledon Artists, encouraging art and artists of the future in Merton. Jo artworks have been exhibited widely within the UK including recent exhibitions such as Street Figures – 508 Gallery, Chelsea, London from 23 March to 3 April 2019. and Solo Pop Up Art show at Neptune Wimbledon – October 2018.
