Giles Penny

Giles Penny (RWA) is a British artist who divides his time between sculpture, painting and printmaking.

Giles went to The Heatherly School of Fine Art, Chelsea, Bournemouth & Poole College of Art and Newport College of Art.

His focus of expression is the human form, which acts as a vehicle to explore both the physical and abstract worlds and often portrays an innocent humorous quality. The nature of his figures remains eternally elusive. 

“I work on several pieces at once until something is complete. I am driven by the feeling that my next project will be my finest, but when I reflect on my work over the past forty years I’ve found it’s the idea and its realisation that completes the experience”  

His large scale pieces can be seen in many public spaces including: Golden Square, London; Canary wharf, London; Body Shop International; Fulham Reach, London; Liminster Church, Sussex; Wolverhampton city centre; Bruton, Somerset.
