From painting to ceramics, photography to printmaking and everything in between, Wimbledon Art Fair offers the opportunity to explore the working studios of London’s most exciting contemporary artists and makers, and buy art directly from the person who made it.
With just two months to go, we’ve been chatting to printmaker Zoe Anker
Hi Zoe, so it’s safe to say you love bright colours - is that your inspiration?
Yes, it is! I love colour, I love to travel and I love graffiti.
So how would you describe your practice?
I am a printmaker, specialising in screen printing. I am known for my vivid colours and my use of geometric shapes.
What can we expect to see at this November’s Wimbledon Art Fair?
My body of work for the next show will see a continuation of juxtaposition of colour and shape. I’ve also been working on some larger scale pieces which I will be including too.
Have you got any other exhibitions coming up?
Yes, I am exhibiting at Gallery@OXO at the end of September, as part of the annual A Letter in Mind charity fundraiser. Each artist donates a piece of work on an envelope, which will be sold for £85 each. All money is raised for The National Brain Appeal, which funds to advance treatment and research at The National Hospital for Neurology & Neurosurgery and the Institute of Neurology, so it’s a lovely event to be part of.
And finally, what do you enjoy about being at Wimbledon Art Studios?
Having been in and around Wimbledon Art Studios for a few years now, I mainly enjoy the social and community environment. It’s great to be surrounded by such a diverse array of amazing artists… I love being here!
Thanks Zoe, we look forward to seeing you in studio 103 at Wimbledon Art Fair, from the 15 - 18 November 2018.
