Katy Binks

Based in London and the North West, Katy Binks is a multi-disciplinary artist with a broad and colourful creative practice specialising in prints, murals and textile design. She discovered her passion for printmaking while studying BA Graphic Arts at the University of East London, before joining the highly regarded MA Printmaking course at Camberwell College of Arts. Having graduated in 2013, Binks was included in the prestigious Catlin Guide, which recognised her as one of the UK’s most promising emerging artists.

Binks collaborates with brands, creatives, architects, interior designers and property developers to create designs, spaces and places that inspire. Previous clients & collaborators include Boxpark, Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust, Coco di Mama, The Nightingale Project, ASC Gallery and Imperial College Health Care Trust.

Binks' rich graphic palette is informed by a questioning and experimental spirit, exploring the relationships between colour, shape, volume and proportion, as well as engaging with architecture and the urban environment. More recently, she has been exploring a looser, more intuitive approach to printmaking. This new sense of freedom has invigorated her practice to such an extent that it now has more in common with painting than with edition-led printmaking.
