Josie Blue Molloy

A London-based artist and recipient of a prestigious Royal Academy Schools Printmaking Fellowship, Josie is a valued print technician at London College of Communications (LCC), and also runs pop-up screenprinting workshops as Screen Grab.

Fuelled by a fascination with her art heroes – including the Bauhaus, Black Mountain College and Ben Nicholson – Josie’s work explores texture, light and architectural form. Her love of screenprinting has much to do with the physicality of its process. This reveals itself in her prints, combining vibrant blocks of colour with textural elements like fluid brush marks, rubbings and collaged stencils. While screenprinting remains at the heart of her practice, she also experiments with different materials and media, including laser cut woodcuts, handmade paper, polystyrene, and hand-painted wood. Line, form and colour unify the various strands of her practice, contributing to work that is unpredictable, playful, and uplifting.
