This energetic screen print is Oli Fowler's second response to the ever-changing political landscape of the UK.
A swirling and spirited pattern acts as camouflage to the letters on the page, therein becoming a symbol of governmental and political change that artist believes can happen without the knowledge of the people it will affect.
His 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.
