Biography

Georgia Green (b. 1996) received a BA in Fine Art: Painting and Printmaking from Glasgow School of Art in 2018. In 2021 she was awarded a grant as a Rural Arts Keepsake illustrator by Arts Council England and received a financial bursary from Central Saint Martins (UAL) for her community mural work. In 2020 she exhibited her first solo show ‘Hunger Traces’ at Stables in Exile, London. Her second solo show ‘When the Clouds Touch the Ground’ was exhibited in 2021 at Zaratan: Arte Contemporânea in Lisbon, Portugal. Whilst Georgia’s practice is primarily based within the UK, she is closely connected as a creative to Europe through her movements abroad as an Artist in Residence and enjoys working and exhibiting internationally. She has exhibited across the UK, Ireland, Italy, Portugal and Singapore. 

In Georgia’s work dreamscapes and landscapes collide; people and interiors soften into hyper-bright plant and bird motifs; anthropomorphic forms dissolve into something delightfully primitive and hopeful. Within these spaces memory exists as colour alone, illuminated by the chimerical tangle of curiosity and longing that prompts each artwork.

Georgia’s practice is currently focused on low-carbon fine art. Her printmaking business is committed to championing sustainable processes such as Risography, a mechanised form of stencil printing which uses vastly less COthan the average digital printer. Risographic inks are sourced from waste rice or soya products and Georgia only uses recycled paper in her editions. 

Accessibility is also key within Georgia’s work. She actively runs pop-up mural workshops in collaboration with Artification, Berrymede Junior School and Acton Gardens Community Centre in West London.
