About the Artist

Geoff Diego Litherland is a Mexican born artist based in Nottingham. Having spent his early years in Bolivia and Ecuador he moved to England and graduated from Falmouth College of Arts in 2002 with a first class honours degree in Fine Art Painting.


He has exhibited widely, both nationally and internationally. Recognition to date has included winning the Saatchi Online Surreal Showdown in 2012, being awarded the prestigious Warden’s Purchase prize from Goldmsiiths; being selected for the John Moores 25 Painting prize at the Walker Gallery in Liverpool and winning the Nottingham Castle Open in 2008.


Artist Statement

Geoff is currently an Associate Lecturer in Fine Art at Nottingham Trent University and has just completed an MFA in Fine Art at Goldsmiths University of London.


Geoff’s work explores the tension between the natural world and its grasping appropriation by human influence. It draws from traditional genres of painting together with the rusty surrealism of science fiction and the fantasia of abstraction to create a parallel world that seeks to not only question our perception of and relationship to nature, but paintings’ historical and current role in that.
