About the artist:
Oli Fowler is an artist who specialises in screen printing and graphic design. He grew up in Kimpton, Hertfordshire and moved to London in 2000 to study fashion and textiles at Central Saint Martins. More recently, he received a BA in Graphic Design from Camberwell College of Arts.
Oli’s artistic practice spans across various forms of graphic art and design, including printmaking, illustration, photography, and photomontage, and he frequently combines these different mediums in his creative process. He values experimentation from the earliest stages of work and bends the rules of printmaking, allowing for chance and deliberate mistakes to give direction for the finished piece. When screen printing, Oli often uses tape and stickers to break down the composition, and plays around with patterns, textures and photographs to create density of imagery. His dynamic, abstract compositions are characteristic by their use of sharp shapes and pure CMYK colours.
Apart from occasionally experiencing a sudden impulse to draw the odd robot or two, Oli is interested in all things nostalgic, colourful, futuristic, and is an obsessive collector of prog and jazz rock.
