Jasper Joffe (1975, USA) moved to England when he was eight. He is the brother of artist Chantal Joffe. He studied Fine Art at the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art, Oxford and completed an MA in painting at The Royal College of Art in London as well as he received a scholarship to the British School at Rome. In 2004, Joffe exhibited at Rosy Wilde gallery in East London. In 2007 he organised the Free Art Fair in central London. It was an art exhibition where all the art works that were in the exhibition were given away at the end of the exhibition. Joffe also painted 24 paintings in 24 hours at the Chisenhale Gallery in 1999, each canvas was 12 feet by 6 feet. In 2000 he repeated the feat in Milan at Laura Pecci Gallery, although this time the paintings were a variety of sizes. In 2003 he did 72 paintings in 72 hours at Brno House of Arts in the Czech Republic. The canvases this time being the same sizes as Goya painted between 1789 and 1815. He aimed with these shows to challenge the convention of painting being a slow process in the studio, and by working under extreme pressure produce original paintings. Joffe's exhibition "Beauty Show" at the V22 Gallery in London (January-February 2008) caused controversy due to its featuring a pastel painting of Heinrich Himmler, which was bought by Charles Saatchi. In 2009 Joffe, having left his gallery and been left by his girlfriend, sold all his possessions and paintings in "The Sale of a Lifetime" at Idea Generation Galllery in London.
