Becky Jelly trained at Winchester School of Art and the Royal Academy of Arts in London.
The central focus of Becky Jelly’s work addresses conflict; drawing on the current geo-political landscape and tackling issues from the arms trade to the refugee camps. Her paintings combine figurative and abstract elements referencing sourced images relating to conflict and violence, and exploring ways through which to articulate a complex and often unsettling subject through painting. The primary influences on her work are the censorship of information, images of war and the media's use of propaganda in the portrayal of conflict.
