UK United Kingdom
30 pieces of work created jointly by Textile Designer and Painter, Jo Gibbs and Furniture Designer and Artist, Stephan von Lingelsheim will be launched at their show #MESH# at the Waterloo Gallery, London SE1.
The work is an exploration of colour and shapes, for which the artists devised a specific technique combining digital imagery with painting. Their initial sources of inspiration are images, abstracted from our urban surroundings. These are painted and printed on different fabrics, then stretched transforming them into paintings/ objects.
