Oli Fowler Art

Stevenage, hertfordshire

Hi there! welcome to my page! My name is Oli Fowler and I make screen printed artwork. For those of you that don't know, its a form of hand pulled printing where you print in layers to achieve your final artwork. I've been learning how to screen print now for over 15 years. I've just setup my own studio In Hertfordshire. It's taken ages to find all of the equipment but it's all I ever wanted to do in my life, come join me on my journey!

The story behind the business
Meet Oli Fowler art

I remember the day my business really started. I crawled out of bed one morning at the age of 29 and said to myself, "That's it, no more working in retail, no more working for the man." I quit my job and walked off the shop floor. I borrowed £1000 from my Grandad and joined a local screen-print studio. I learned screen printing during the day and worked in bars at night, and I repeated this for a year.

Eventually, I had enough screen-printed work to get me into a course at Camberwell College of Arts. I used my student loan to further my knowledge at the screen-print studio. All of my projects for uni were screen-printed, and when I graduated at the ripe age of 33, I was a competent screen printer with private commissions ready to go.

That was the start of my business. It took me another 5 years to build up a following on Instagram. To start out, I sold my work to friends and family, at festivals and art shows, making lots of mistakes along the way.

Eventually, I made it into the galleries, and I've been working independently ever since.
