East London Printmakers have been invited to participate in The London Illustration Fair again this July.
The fair, based in Hoxton Arches brings artists and illustration lovers together to showcase the diversity of illustration in London and further afield. We’re very excited to have six fantastic artists and illustrators who will be showcasing there latest prints!
They’ll be exhibiting next to some greats and some familiar faces this year, including Heretic Studio, Hello Print Studio and Belly Kids.
The exhibiting artists from ELP are:
Nick Scott has been making artwork for a wide variety of clients over the past decade. Working heavily with bands, he has also worked with international brands in both digital and print media.
Eliza is an artist and illustrator based in London. Most of her current work is printmaking, with subject matter ranging from cycling themes and urban landscapes to large abstract paintings. She also works with collage, charcoal and acrylic.
She has been awarded the Bronze Prize Illustration and her work will be on display at the London Transport Museum as part of the The Prize for Illustration 2015 exhibition until September.
Dolores de Sade’s work is primarily focused on the landscape, but concerned with memory, nostalgia, myth and narrative. She is interested in what landscape means to us today, exploring our experience of such as an industrialised nation and how it is distilled through popular media. Influenced by eighteenth and nineteenth century book and periodical illustration, she is interested in ways that information is given the authority of knowledge and how knowledge is transposed through memory, nostalgia and archetype.
She draws parallels between the challenges brought about by the sudden plethora of images and information that new printing techniques and the early beginnings of mass media in the eighteenth and nineteenth century brought about, and those of our own digital age.
Helen’s working methods centre around the amalgamation of photography, drawing and collage through the medium of printmaking. She’s interested in the constraints and subsequent consequences of print as a mechanistic process.
Eleanor Rogers is an Artist and Designer who lives and works in London. She is an active member of the East London Printmakers and exhibits with them locally and internationally. She studied Fine Art at the Glasgow School of Art, after which she completed a Scholarship to Florence. It was in Florence she began drawing seriously and has not stopped since. Her style of creating is varied, immediate and often humorous opting to make works that instantly impact upon the viewer with its use of colour, text and varied references to popular culture.
I make work in lino, screen print and etching. When I draw it is fast, simple and cut throat and I strive to hold on to this quality within my prints. I try to be honest in all I capture, and aim to create images that are inviting in their hope and strangeness.
Belinda Chen is the creator of Bel’s art world. She is a freelance illustrator, printmaker and book artist based in East London.
Her passion for drawing and art began from a very early age. Growing up in a small family run ceramic factory in North Taiwan. Belinda imagined the factory as a giant playground. It has inspired her to create from childhood striving to create dream-like utopia to be enjoyed by both children and adults of all ages.
Her work normally appears in children’s story books, editorials, textiles and stationery.
