Kate Gibb

A silkscreen artist and illustrator extraordinaire, Kate's London studio is full of screens both old and new, and bursting with colour.

Her unorthodox, playful approach allows her to work intuitively, relying on twenty years of experience and print based experimentation to create each piece. Her practice is driven by colour and process, and her prints – usually created as unique artworks – are often defined by moments of serendipity. It's Kate's technical nous as much as her eye for colour that inspires many to seek her advice. She often works alongside other artists including Look Uppers Sophie Smallhorn, Giuseppe D'Innella, Josie Molloy, and William Luz – with their fruitful collaboration, Touching Elbows. Her commissioned images have brought to life campaigns for clients including Dries van Noten, The Chemical Brothers, Stussy, Hermés and more. Her personal and professional practices remain interwoven, each informing the other; commercial work often providing the impetus to experiment with new techniques, and vice versa.
