Introducing the next artist that CreateVoice will be working with, in tandem with Jimmy Turrell: screen print artist Kate Gibb. Having studied Printed Textiles at Middlesex University, she moved onto an MA at Central St Martins like her partner for this project, Jimmy Turrell. Her spectacular screenprints have attracted work from a huge variety of creative genres: with her base in textiles she has worked for Dries Van Noten, Levis and Addidas; her involvement in visual art in the music industry is massive, including work for Bob Marley, The Chemical Brothers and Kate Nash (above); my favourite works of hers are the reissue of the back catalogue of H.G. Wells from Penguin. Gibb and Turrell are sure to be a fantastic pairing for the Creativity in the City event!
