Young Talented Fresh and Urban, Phaedra Peer is at the forefront of the new emerging generation of Brit Art. The London based artists’ work is clearly inspired from her early studies in graphics and illustration at Brighton, which gives her work an urban, pop arty and edgy feel. Her portfolio consists of detailed portraiture of the figures that inspire her from the modern ‘celebrity’ to the creatives and friends she surrounds herself with. Her work is a focus on the emotional with a seemingly modern and harrowing twist with a clear organic style that is fresh to see in someone so young and at the start of her career. People are naturally attracted to Phaedra’s work being able to affiliate with the under tones of inner torment and the surreal darkness that shrouds are glittery and positive everyday lives. She depicts and portrays the turmoil and anxiety felt within each and every one of us laying it bare for others to judge with raw vulnerability.
Phaedra is one to watch having been spotted in various magazines and a regular string of commissions from her celebrity clientèle. Her most recent exhibition for the charity Peace One Day in Notting Hill was very successful with many of her childhood effigies being bought prior to opening night.
Her upcoming solo exhibition at the Sanctum Soho opens on the 8th March and is set to be every bit as successful as the last. With an already impressive guestlist of press, celebrities, and ‘glitterati’ there is no doubt that her pieces will be snapped up as quickly as previous exhibits, and will once again like no other push the boundaries of expectations.
