Chantal Joffe brings a combination of insight and integrity, as well as psychological and emotional force, to the genre of figurative art. Hers is a deceptively casual brushstroke. Whether in images a few inches square or ten feet high, fluidity combined with a pragmatic approach to representation seduces and disarms. Born in 1969, Chantal Joffe lives and works in London. She holds an MA from the Royal College of Art and was awarded the Royal Academy Wollaston Prize in 2006.
Joffe has exhibited nationally and internationally with venues including Royal Academy of Arts, London [2018, 2017]; National Portrait Gallery, London (2015); Jewish Museum, New York (2015). She has recently created a major new public work for the Elizabeth line station at Whitechapel. Titled A Sunday Afternoon in Whitechapel, which will be on view when the Crossrail station opens in 2019.
