Oli Fowler is an artist who specialises in screen-printing and illustration. He grew up in Kimpton, Hertfordshire and moved to London in 1999 to study fashion and textiles at Central Saint Martins. More recently, he received a BA in Graphic Design from Camberwell College of Arts.
Oli’s artistic practice spans across various forms of graphic art and design, including printmaking, illustration, photography, and photomontage, and he frequently combines these different mediums in his creative process. He values experimentation from the earliest stages of work allowing for chance and deliberate mistakes to give direction for the finished piece. His dynamic and 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.
Oli has built up a strong list of clients from various creative disciplines, and has been commissioned for printing by Jeremy Deller, Fraser Muggeridge, Emily Evans and Fiona Banner to name a few as well as original artwork and designs for LOM Architecture Design, The Museum of London and Island Records)
Alongside his freelance work, for the past 8 years Oli has also been involved with the Print Club London as a valued technician and tutor. He has led screen-printing classes and provided one-to-one tutoring for creative professionals and beginners alike.
