Oli Fowler is a contemporary British artist, who specialises in screen printing and graphic design. Not limited to a single process, Fowler incorporates graphics, illustration, photography and photomontage into his work, combining these different mediums with an experimental approach. His work fuses the figurative and the abstract, exploiting innovative compositional technique, sharp, defined shapes, and a pure CMYK palette, for a bold and arresting visual quality which is attuned to all things nostalgic.
‘2001’ is Fowler’s homage to Stanley Kubrick’s cult film 2001: A Space Odyssey. The print centres around imagery from the iconic 1960s film poster: a figure in an orange space suit stands dwarfed amidst sci-fi scenery. Around the original artwork, Fowler has layered stills from the film, awash with pink and yellow pigment, to create a fragmented and abstracted aesthetic that artfully captures the dystopian chaos of Kubrick’s vision.
