Jack Penny (B. 1989) is an British artist currently based in Portsmouth.
The faces and figures in Jack's work are inspired by people he has met and places he has been. He is especially interested in social interactions and how people respond to different situations. The creative practice is motivated by a search for authenticity, he's driven by capturing a sense of humanity within his work. His mark making is very intuitive and each work is made without hesitation.
