Kate Banazi

Sydney-based Kate is a silkscreen artist, illustrator and textile designer extraordinaire.

Born in London, she originally studied menswear at Central Saint Martins but today she’s known for her graphic silkscreen prints – both on paper and Perspex. Why the change? When Kate left CSM a friend offered her the opportunity to work in their printmaking studio… That friend was silkscreen artist and fellow Look Upper Kate Gibb, and it looks like Kate B caught the bug. Kate continues to experiment with the medium, building an exceptional catalogue of work while collaborating with other artists including Diego Berjon, a Mexican artist based in Barcelona. “Collaboration pushes me in different directions and challenges like nothing else." From her paper editions and one-off silkscreen prints to her Perspex work and beyond, Kate's creative oeuvre has a unique elegance and verve, and we're thrilled that she's involved with Look Up.
