Chloe McClellan


Location: London, UK

Chloe McClellan is a British artist who lives and works in London UK. Her work explores historic materials; the very craft of painting and drawing and the relationship that contemporary painting has with building through craft. She graduated from the Slade School of Fine Art in London with an MFA in Fine Art Painting. Previous to this she studied at LICA and gained a BA in Fine Art. She was granted the Boise Travel Scholarship to study the craft of Renaissance painting in Italy and won the Desiree Prize for Painting after leaving the Slade. Recent shows include CLAM JAM at The Royal Standard in Liverpool and Drawing into Sculpture at the Griffin Gallery in London curated by Becca Pelly-Fry and Jessica Carlise. She will be shortly exhibiting in a solo exhibition at the Over St Johns Church in Cheshire.
