George Groves is a 21 year old portrait artist, who has worked with some of the leading performers in the world, in sports, film, and business. Having started on a smaller scale, George now works on pieces up to 2 by 2 metres, of portraits captured in oils, always telling a story through his marks.
A recent publication in Vogue featuring George, has shown a different side to the artist, talking about mental health and the importance of wellbeing within the creative industry. Charity is at the core of the Groves’ Studios, giving back to the community where he can.
George recently invited over 20 artists from around the world to interpret the Southern Ground Hornbill, allowing each artist to explore the subject through their own creative medium.
Entries have recently been showcased and auctioned on Georges site, raising essential funds for The Alf Rewin Conservation Fund.
George now looks forward to the unveiling of his portrait of Ray Edwards MBE, the oldest quadriplegic in the UK, who came and sat for George in his studio during summer. The piece measures at almost 2 metres tall, and 1.2 metres wide, a magnificent composition that George hopes to share with not only his private collectors, but the public and beyond.
