Jules George has been a professional artist since leaving Staffordshire University in 1992. He completed his masters at Edinburgh College of Art in 1998.
His painting is complimented by the use of printmaking, which he has produced since training in Edinburgh under ‘Master Printer’ Alfons Bytautas in the early nineties.
The raw energy and mood conveyed in his on-location studies forms the basis to his painting and printmaking projects. He has worked on a variety of projects with subjects as diverse as the Scottish African Diaspora, auctions, the Suffolk landscape and a Thai-Burmese border crossing.
Travelling extensively to gather his source material, recent trips have been made to Afghanistan, the Arabian Gulf/Indian Ocean and lately The Falkland Isles/South Atlantic.
He has exhibited in a number of one man and group shows in Britain and abroad. Highlights include ‘Into the Valley – Scenes of an Afghan Conflict’ shown at Bonhams, London 2011 and Bonhams, Edinburgh 2012, ‘Promenade’ at the Peter Pears Gallery, Aldeburgh 2008 and ‘It’s No Palm Beach’ shown at The City Arts Centre, Edinburgh 2004/05.
His work has been commissioned and collected by individuals and organisations including Edinburgh City Council, Laing O’Rourke, National Army Museum, National Museum of the Royal Navy, Southampton University and York Art Gallery.
