Jo Peel has made a living capturing city streets in stylish illustrations that turn even the dingiest of locales into places viewers would want to visit. She purposefully leaves out human subjects in order to draw more attention to the sites she paints, letting audiences enjoy architecture and street signs unimpeded by diversions. Put in the context of art, these street depictions highlight just how beautiful cities are in their tranquility.

Jo Peel currently resides in London, England, and is a part of the renowned Scrawl Collective. Her work has taken her to New York, Japan and Hong Kong, and her paintings are regularly exhibited within the UK. She explains that "everyday scenes and scenarios" are her muse, and that she’s willing to recreate places with a paint brush from all walks of life.
