Kate Gibb

Kate is a silkscreen artist and illustrator extraordinaire – her London studio bursting with screens both old and new, and lots of 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 only in the last few years that she’s looked to retain the aesthetic of her approach while creating small, limited editions. 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. Her collaboration with Will, Touching Elbows, continues to bear the juiciest of fruits and editions by the duo are now available from Look Up. 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.
