The East London printmaker and tutor Oli Fowler, airs his views on the plight of Brexit for the UK as debate on the topic continued to ravaged through politics in 2019.
In his iconic bright screenprinting style, he spells his message clear and bold in fragments of a broken Union Jack.
Oli Fowler's dynamic, sometimes abstract, compositions are characterised by their use of collage scrap book style cut outs, photographed textures, solid spot colours and pure CMYK 4 colour process printing methods. He values experimentation from the earliest stages of work allowing for chance and deliberate mistakes to give direction for the finished piece
Specialising in screen-printing and illustration, Oli’s artistic practice spans across various forms of graphic art and design, including printmaking, illustration, photography, and photomontage. He often combines these different mediums in his creative process.
