Joe Fenwick-Wilson was born in 1993 in Rugby, Warwickshire. After many years as an outside artist, he went to study fine art at the prestigious Falmouth University. He has lived in different places across England, but is now based in Cambridgeshire where he has his studio at St Barnabas Press (Cambridge).
His paintings and drawings are inspired by the mundaneness of happenings and objects from the day to day. He often uses repetition as he likes to push drawing until it becomes as mechanical as writing one’s name. Also inspired by patterns and rituals, Joe’s work celebrates the uniqueness and strangeness of the normal. He attempts to create an entrance to his work through identifiable objects and actions; this allows the viewer to reflect on their own rituals and relationships with the forgettable yet important things in their lives.
