PEACOCK is a collaborative project between artists Chris Attenborough and Sean Naftel. Born in the United State, both received their MFAs from the National University of Ireland Galway. PEACOCK has exhibited work in Ireland and Queens, NY as well as throughout the U.S. The duo was recently selected to participate in the following: Inaugural (e)merge Art Fair in Washington DC, SEVEN Art Fair in Miami, Jordan Faye Contemporary and the Contemporary Museum in Baltimore. PEACOCK’s side project is Roving Project, a wandering gallery that occupies slack-spaces for short-term exhibitions. Currently Roving Project is presenting PLYWOOD, a white wall pop-up gallery in North Baltimore. Both artists currently work and live in Queens, New York
