Jeffrey Dennis is an English painter whose work often explores people’s daily experience, movement and inhabitation.

Born in Colchester in 1958, Dennis graduated from the Slade School of Fine Art in 1980 and has been exhibiting since 1979. His 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.

His works are in public and private collections across the world, including the Arts Council Collection, British Council, Tate, Foundation Cartier pour l’art contemporain, Paris and Unilever. Recent solo exhibitions include Ringbinder at Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art in 2015.

Jeffrey Dennis is also a Senior Lecturer in Fine Art at Chelsea College of Arts.
