Jeffrey Dennis is an English artist born in 1958. He studied at the Slade School of Fine Art and lives in London. His past paintings have embedded glimpses of contemporary urban life within landscapes of processed peas,rotting fruit or Victorian wallpaper designs and, more recently, the 'bubblescape' an organic matrix which seems to offer the potential for continual mutation and evolution. He teaches on the BA Fine Art course and supervises research students at Chelsea College of Arts, University of the Arts London.
Jeffrey Dennis' paintings are in the collections of the Arts Council of England, the British Council, the British Standards Institution, the Department for Business Innovation and Skills, Fondation Cartier pour l'art contemporain, Paris, Leeds Art Gallery, the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, Swindon Museum & Art Gallery, the Tate, Unilever plc as well as private collections in UK, Europe, USA and Asia.
