This year we are getting to know our artists a little more, by taking tours around their studios and exploring where all the magic happens. To kick off our series of tours, we visited the always lovely Lucille Moore. We have been working with Lucille over the last two years, turning her cardboard collages into limited edition screen prints.

We caught up with Lucille who is currently working on a new collection of work, all inspired by her recent trip to America, exploring the idea of ‘Wanted’; a home, a new life, love, freedom, adventure… Basic human desires and the original American Dream through the eyes of cowboys. 

Within the majority of Lucille’s work, she uses cardboard, repurposing a material primarily used for packaging. Enjoying the freeness that cardboard allows her to be with her work, Lucille has gone on to create many pieces using this material, including her first piece ‘Fluffy Women’ which was featured in The RA’s Summer Exhibition 2016.

Originally from Nottingham, Paul is an award-winning illustrator living in London. He was fortunate enough to have had his personal project, Alphabet, published as a children’s book in 2011. Since then he hasn’t looked back.

Paul loves original vintage posters and still has room on his walls for some more (hint, hint).

A London based illustrator and Print Maker. Taking inspiration from the everyday and mundane he always tries to inject some humour and life into even the most boring object. Working on a variety of projects from Children’s books to Wrapping paper to Murals, his work always comes with a smile.

Lucille is a French London based Illustrator. Lucille set up my studio in East London after graduating from Central Saint Martins with an MA in Communication Design and before, from ENSAAMA in Paris with a DSAA in Visual Communication. Lucille’s work mainly within the field of editorial design and illustration, occasionally also realising interior and exhibition spaces. Her work is mainly handcrafted from drawing to printing.

If you’ve recently been to Kew Gardens you may have seen the newly refurbished Great Pagoda. Our long term Print Club member and artist Lucille Clerc had the honour of creating murals within the pagoda which climb all the way up inside the building. Lucille has produced 14 limited edition screenprints inspired by her visits to Kew Gardens, check them out below!

1. Night at Kew, Edition of 50, £180
2. Day at Kew, Edition of 50, £180

Having spent quite some time in the Gardens and even more while creating this project, Lucille carries on gathering a body of work around the botanical theme. Something she started years ago with her show “Wild Botanicus” here at Print Club London’s Gallery. Since then she’s been exploring the idea of conservatory, the relation between architecture and nature, constructed and cultivated, tamed and wild, endangered and protected.

Here is a new series inspired by Kew Gardens, a collections of sketches reflecting the sensation of wandering, the endless discoveries and hidden inhabitants and variety of species of the gardens, and the beautiful structures protecting the collections.

The Great Pagoda was designed by Sir William Chambers, architect to King George IV, and completed in 1762 as a gift for Princess Augusta, the founder of the botanic gardens at Kew. It is a ten-storey octagon tower, standing at almost 50m and it offered one of the earliest and finest bird’s eye views of London.

Chambers studied oriental architecture in China, but when he designed Kew’s pagoda he ignored some of the rules. Pagodas should have an odd number of floors, traditionally seven (rather than ten), believed to represent seven steps to heaven. Yet The Great Pagoda was the most accurate reconstruction of a Chinese building in Europe at the time. It was originally flanked by a Moorish Alhambra and a Turkish Mosque, and 17 other follies from classical temples and ruins to eastern-inspired buildings that were all the rage in the great gardens of the time.

Historic Royal Palaces just refurbished The Great Pagoda and after months of work by a whole team of passionate historians, designers and craft-makers it is now back to its original 18th century splendour. This includes the original 80 dragons which originally adorned the roofs, each carved from wood
and gilded with real gold.

Lucille always had a thing for Kew Gardens since her first encounter with the Pagoda when she was 4. She’s been a member of Kew Gardens when she first moved to London and the gardens have been a source of inspiration in her screen prints since then.

Lucille won the tender set by Historic Royal Palaces for the creation of a mural inside the Pagoda, on the ground floor. The brief set by HRP and Skellon studio evolved as the project developed, and the initial illustrated panels changed into a whole mural.

The project grew over a few months from research, sketching the trees on the way to the Pagoda, portraying Sir William Chambers, King George IV and his mother Princess Augusta based on Kew Palace’s archives, drawing the two giant trees that surround the doors to scale with all their bark details, and leaves, stylizing iconic botanical species and animals present at the time in the gardens (based on curator Polly Putnam’s research) to find a style combining 18th century references and contemporary expectations.

LUCILLE’S THANKS!

Big thanks to project manager Tom Bennett and project director Craig Hatto, all the gentlemen at Bluesky, painters and scaffolding team, curator Polly Putnam, designers at Skellon Studio for this amazing adventure! And Farrow and Ball for being such a supportive sponsor, and providing such great quality paint (what a treat!)

2017-Printern-Show

Here it is our second Print-ern Show! We will be showcasing the amazing talents of our former Print-erns Rozalina Burkova and Francesca Tiley with their exclusive prints which were produced with us during their Printernship here at Print Club London!

 _________________________________________________________________

Date: Thursday 14th September 2017

Time: 6 – 9pm

Location: Print Club London Gallery, Unit 3 10-28 Millers Ave, E8 2DS

 _________________________________________________________________

After the brilliant success of our last ‘Printernship,’ we’re super excited to share with you our latest, equally as inspiring offering from illustrators Francesca Tiley and Rozalina Burkova!

Towards the end of last year, we selected both girls to take part in our rewarding ‘Printernship’ scheme, allowing them to create a number of prints, whilst developing their own personal styles.

The ‘Printernship’ opportunity allows recent graduates to print and create work in our studio, coupled with free desk space and guidance from fellow printers and technicians. Offering financial support along with our own creative direction and printing expertise, the scheme results in a series of prints from each artist exclusive to Print Club.

The exhibition will feature original works, limited edition screenprints and on one off ceramics by each artist and will also be the debut of their exciting collaboration together, with hand painted murals and exclusive prints available on the opening night.

LAPP have kindly sponsored the entire evening with their amazing Poptails! So make sure you come down and have a Poptail with us!

So our most recent printerns have been here just over a month now! And we know you’re DESPERATE to know what they been getting up to in our studios! Each printern works as a studio technician one day a week, where they assists members printing, tidy the studio, help out with workshops and they will pick up tricks of the trade from professional printers! Apart from that day they can use the studio as they please, our studio is 24/7!


Charlie has just finished his 1st limited edition screen print and we love it! His work plays with overlays and colour, making his work a bold piece to have on your wall! Here’s a few WIP shots and the print itself!


Charlie Gould is an illustrator and print-maker based in Hampshire.

Charlie’s love of mundane objects, counter-culture, and bad films are a huge source of inspiration for his work. Usually finding itself a mash-up of all the above, with some bright colour thrown in for good measure.

Artist’s featured in the show:

David Shand trained as a graphic designer and has worked in design and illustration for the last 20 years. David works primarly in screenprint and collage, often combining the two to create editions and one off pieces. David has sold at Atom Gallery, Studio 73, Affordable Artfair and the Druck Berlin Screenprint Festival.

David uses old posters from the underground as a starting point for his work, finding himself drawn to their decaying images and viewing them in an abstract, playful way.  David is known for his subverted imagery of torn and distressed posters, with his work being a visual exolpration of how advertising loses its commercial message through time and decay and how new meanings emerge.

Isabella Cotier

Isabella Cotier graduated from London College of Fashion studying Illustration and has been freelancing ever since. Some of her clients include H&M, Fortnum and Mason, Paul Smith and Vivienne Westwood. Isabella grew up in Florence, Italy where she experienced a more traditional way of drawing.

Isabella’s main interest is portraying people through expressive and unrestricted lines, playing on her impulsivity and celebrating the imperfections in her work. The majority of Isabella’s work is based on life drawing sessions where she captures a model’s presence with lines and expression, often developing this further from the impression they’ve left.

JOHNATHAN REINER SOLO SHOW – FEMME FATALE

Johnathan learnt his screenprinting skills under the guidance of print club head printer Marco Lawrence.

He spent many weeks printing his work and developing his pieces which we have been selling since he started producing work as a screenprinter

Femme Fatale features Reiner’s female portraiture works, which challenge both historical and contemporary representations of female beauty. Currently training as a neurologist, Dr. Reiner’s work dissects ‘objective’ and ‘universal’ ideals, and reveals them to be socially constructed concepts. He shows how these concepts are not hard-wired into our brains, but imposed on us by the culture we live in.   Using found materials, which range from early 20th century soft pornography to contemporary fashion magazines, Reiner contrasts Western notions of beauty with those of non-western, native and tribal beauty. In doing so he explores the idea that the concept of ‘beauty’ is fluid, and liable to change according to time, place and context. What begins as a figure portrayed as fragile or tormented is transformed and empowered by the artist’s embellishment. Reiner provides an individuality and personality to the muse by adding tribal references and motifs from the natural world. He raises his subjects from that of a models who are coveted, to figures which are worshiped.   “It is about empowering; reclaiming of the image’s power” explains Reiner.  


Date: Thursday 1st December

Time: 6 – 9pm

Printernship-600x286

Our Printernship scheme has been going on for some time now and we have had some amazing artists and really cool work produced! We had such a high standard of work this time around that we couldn’t just pick one.. We decided to get in two VERY talented recent grads to be a part of Print Club for two months!

Introducing Rozalina Burkova & Francesca Tiley..rozalina

ROZALINA BURKOVA_PORTRAIT

Rozalina is a freelance illustrator and occasional animator based in London. Born and raised in Bulgaria she moved to London to study at Central Saint Martins College where she graduated in 2015.

Her work is a mix of hand drawn and digital elements united with the magic of Photoshop. Her animations are 2D, jittery and really fun to make. She enjoy rich colours, imperfect lines and subjects caught in dreamy states.ROZALINA BURKOVA WORK

As Print Club’s newest addition, what are you most looking forward to?

I am so looking forward to improve my screen printing skills and to get a better understanding of the craft. Also I usually work with colours only digitally so mixing inks and finding the right combinations is something I am both scared from and excited about!

If you could sum up your work in a few words, how would you describe it?

Vivid colours, textures, imperfect (often naked) bodies and fun utopia.

What kind of things do you have in mind to create over your two month Printernship?

At the moment I am thinking of focusing on imaginary landscapes where people and creatures are having a chilled time, but two months is a long time so nothing is certain.


Francesca tiley

Francesca’s work is defined by vibrant colours, decorative patterns and playful lettering.

As Print Club’s newest addition, what are you most looking forward to?

For the coming months I’m mostly excited to refine the basic screen printing knowledge I have and to start making new work.

If you could sum up your work in a few words, how would you describe it?

Bright colours, fun lettering and expressive characters…usually accompanied by decorative patterns.  

What kind of things do you have in mind to create over your two month Printernship?

Big and bright images with lots of lettering…


Keep your eyes peeled for new work in the next few weeks!

clare

It’s time for another Artist Spotlight! This one with Clare Halifax a multi disciplined printer whose latest botanical collection has been flying out of our shop. We met at one of her places of inspiration, the Barbican for a coffee and a catch up.

Drawing Botanicals

Her most recognizable work is her detail orientated architectural and landscape pieces that are a personal juxtaposition of organic vs. manmade. By offering a wonderful perspective of known buildings from across the city Clare’s work connects with people. Allowing people to indentify with an area they love; a time, a place, a period of their lives they want to cherish, Clare creates all of that with her illustrative work.

Next colour is pink

 

Clare starts each piece with an initial hand rendered drawing then she has to move things digitally to help with repeating patterns and preparing the layers for screen-printing. She has been doing some very interesting things with framing and the use of negative space, with some of her vines and leaves just creeping on to the paper.

Panoramic

At the moment she is taking a break from buildings and having fun exploring an alphabet series with some unique colour choices. She hopes to return to architecture drawings again soon, missing the detail process and familiarity of drawing the world around her.

Dogs
She can’t imagine doing anything else and why would we want her to! With great recommendations for contemporary artists and one of a kind cactus shops she is a very interesting conversationalist. Hope to talk again soon Clare.

10 years

A perfect place for a pit stop on your way through the city this month is Ryan Callanan solo show at the Lawrence Alkin Gallery. Nestled just north of Seven Dials the 2-floor gallery is showing their second major show with the artist. Consisting of what Ryan is famous for: his smiley faces synonymous with the acid house rave culture of the 1980s as well as some new emoji themed works.

Acid Abstractions

Collection of Faces

 

Already a prominent street artist as well as one of our lovely print club artists, remember his Summer Screen print? RYCA has over the last 3 years been moving towards a new practice that draws upon his history of craftsmanship in 3-D sign & model making. Downstairs is a selection of bas-relief pieces associated with traditional pub signs – gold inlay and black lacquered backgrounds. His newer works at the galleries entrance venture more into the abstract and obscure than ever before but maintain a core theme.

 

10 Years Later marks a decade anniversary of Ryan’s work and promises a glimpse in to the fun future that his expert technique and pop art inspired style will bring.

Smile Sculptures Table

Ryca

An artist working in contemporary printmaking and graphics. Already a prominent artist on the Street Art scene, the last three years have seen Ryan move away from this aesthetic towards a new practice that draws upon his in-depth knowledge of materials and craftsmanship acquired through his training in industrial model making and 3-D design.

From the starting point of the emblematic visual sign, RYCA began a series of works using the smiley face synonymous with acid house rave culture in the 1980s. Working in bas-relief, this iconic motif was recontextualised by rendering it in material and style usually associated with traditional pub signs – gold inlay and black lacquered background. This highly technical skill obtained and finessed through Ryan’s parallel career in the sign making industry.

Kingdom Exhibtion

One of our Miller Junction desk space members and Print Club artist Caroline Tomlinson has recently held her own solo show in Cape Town. The show was inspired by ‘Kingdom exhibition

Caroline TomlinsonKINGDOM TO WIDTH AT 2m_2

‘Fragments’ and Part 2 is called ‘Horizon’ – both are printed 100% silk, and hang 2meters in length, the pictures at the space should help give you an idea.

Inspired by the theme of the “Kingdom exhibition”

“Pantheism embodies the central belief that the universe and nature should be regarded with the deepest reverence; that “We are part of nature.”

At our death we will be reabsorbed into nature. We are at home in nature. The earth is where we make our paradise, not in an afterlife beyond the grave.

If nature is the only paradise, then our separation from nature and destruction thereof is the only hell.

Intrinsic to most indigenous tribal cultures is the belief that Nature is something we live within and as a part of . “There is no essential separation: no transcendental dualism, no Enlightenment search for objectivity, no Puritan fear of dangerous, chaotic nature”. Nature and ecology represent and include what are often the most important elements of indigenous peoples’ lifestyle. Fundamentally, the earth as the source of life is seen as the creator, a spiritual being. The land therefore is not only the source of all sustenance, but a definer of identity and place of spiritual grounding.

rose-copy rose-harris-close-up

Print Club London are really excited to announce our first artist spotlight, we caught up with Rose in the beautiful Harris home in Chelsea. Rose has had a wonderful creative journey from discovering etching at University to joining us at Print Club as an intern and now getting to see her work enjoyed even on the other side of the world.
earlier-furniture-work

Rose knew art was her destined subject feeling comfortable with the departments’ informality. She had only ever done paintings, until completing her degree where she had to trial different process as part of the course. She wanted to learn a craft to give her focus and direction, a re-surging trend amongst artists.

pinkpink-stairs-rose-framed

Pink Stairs // Edition of 50, £120

 ‘It suddenly all clicked, this is what I am interesting in, its what I love, I was surrounded with it and it suddenly made sense’.

From interiors magazines and a talented family Rose finds inspiration in the world around her. By giving her unique perspective she creates a distinct style that is easily admired and accessible.

Etchings slowly took a back seat to silk screen-printing as Rose started her Printernship. By giving her space to work she developed direction alongside a whole new process to experiment in. Rose has always been relaxed about precision, admitting her registration is never on point and we love that about her work, giving it a handmade look with each print usually being an edition 1 of 1.

The ‘Vase in my Bedroom’ series is her latest works with several colour-ways available exclusively from Print Club’s online shop. She is currently working on translating etching designs to silk screen prints.

Your Space or Mine.

 

Artist Joe Cruz has had a busy few months, aside from creating one of this year’s summer screen prints for the film Funny Face, he has been part of a great street art project.

 

BethnalGreenStreet

 

He teamed up with Jack: an agency that specializes in unconventional campaigns. Their latest edition being the ‘Your Space Or Mine’ project. The project see’s the agency exploring art and ambient messaging on the street by teaming up with artists to provide a dialog and platform for creative imagery. It was Joes’ first showcase of large-scale work and we saw his distinct style of found imagery and strong mark making merge with the iconic streets of London.

 

CheshireStreet-Shoreditch

 

Joe collaborated with photographer Sophie Mayanne and responded to these spaces by creating a series of boldly provocative images blurring lines between defining aspect of youth culture. Joe is always challenging himself to find new spaces for his distinct work placing it this time in the public sphere for all to enjoy.

 

EborStreet

 

The four pieces are located on: Ebor Street, Cheshire Street, Bethnal Green Road and Poland Street, in the Shoreditch area. Adding to their allure is their limited life span as is the nature of street art, ever changing to suit our vibrant creative city.

A little about Jack Agency. 

They began small, distributing posters for local artists and gigs in London and since grown to become a leading out-of-home agency for the lifestyle, fashion, music, film and arts industries. They are unconventional, doing things no one else tries and love exploring ideas to interact with weary over exposed audiences in a fresh way.

An agency with a difference – they own their outdoor sites, meaning there is no middleman in terms of media, going from concept to billboard with their own street team. We are slightly jealous of their clients who get their unforgettable brand experiences brought to life everyday.

Having followed the work of Fei Alexeli for some time now, we simply had to get in touch with her after seeing her recent collection of work on display at the Other Art Fair, Victoria House.
Whilst studying architecture in Oxford, Fei found her passion for visual arts. Her practice involves a combination of different forms of mixed media. Fei uses photography, photo-montage and digital collage to create a juxtaposition of real elements and surreal environments and situations. The result, magical.
“There is a motif that repeats itself in my work. In most of my collages there are pictures portraying the universe. The concept of the universe is awe-inspiring to me but I think that Neil deGrasse Tyson conveyed it perfectly: “I look up at the night sky and I know that, yes, we are part of this universe, we are in this universe but perhaps more important than both of these facts, is that the universe is in us. Many people feel small, because they are small and the universe is big. But I feel big because my atoms came from those stars.”
Over the last month Print Club London has been working with Fei to produce the artists first fully screen printed, limited edition prints. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
Introducing the first two limited edition, hand pulled silkscreen prints available exclusively through Print Club London.

Our talented Printern, Aleesha Nandhra has been busy in the studio over the last couple of months and we are excited to launch her new and exclusive, limited edition screen prints, Ramen Bar and Japanese Eats. The first of many!!
It’s not hard to guess the influence of Aleesha’s work, her love for travel and food is evident throughout her inspirations, sketch book doodling’s and finished prints.
And I’m sure you agree, they make us very hungry!!
Ramen Bar Screen Print
Edition of 40 // £70
Japanese Eats Screen Prints
Edition of 40 // £60
So what else has Aleesha been up to outside of Print Club?!
“Over the past month I’ve been learning my way around the process of screen printing again, and have finally completed my first prints!
In the background of trying out prints and making mistakes (!) I’ve been working on a few other projects.
I’m excited to say that I will have a comic featured in the next issue of OFFLIFE which is out on 6th May.
I’ve also been working on a series of new zines and prints for two fairs in May; The first being The London Radical Book Fair (7th May) and DIY Cultures (29th May).”
