KATE BANAZI

Kate-Banazi-Bio-PicKate Banazi was born in London and studied fashion at Middlesex Polytechnic and Central St Martins College of Art and Design. Kate has worked from Sydney for the last decade on an art-based practice, working within fashion, music, illustration and advertising. Her work is experimental, intuitive and often playful, with science, space travel and colour interactions key references. She celebrates the variations of hand silkscreen printing, exploring the layering of colour and graphic elements alongside linear grid structures and hand drawn forms, whilst showing the makers hand.

By exploring silkscreen printing as a mark-making medium and embracing un-retouched screens, allowing the nuances, textures and unexpected results as outcomes to be welcomed and celebrated.

Her current work celebrates the interactions of colour and form through flat and 3D works in both silkscreen and coloured acrylic sculptures. Relationships, identity, movement, shadows and colour are mapped through interlocking shapes. Negative space and line work plot chaos, voids and beauty – a reaction of everyday life in all its unpredictable glory.

Kate lives and works in Sydney, Australia.
