Gerry Buxton is a photographer, illustrator and experimental printmaker. Based in South East London, Gerry has produced commissioned illustrations for clients including The Tate Modern, London City Airport and the Marylebone Cricket Club.
His illustrations all start from collages of his original photographs, often capturing the same characters making their way through the scene, his cityscapes capture a period of time and the life and movement of his chosen subjects.
His recent series of character studies of people using their smart phones screen printed onto iPhones are a piece of contemporary pop art in the truest tradition of the genre. They capture a slice of who we are and how we live now.
Gerry’s printmaking practice explores the full diversity of his chosen medium, screen printing. From traditional fine art editions on paper to textiles and wallpapers, to prints on wood, glass, metal and even old iPhones Gerry strives to bring industrial screen printing into a fine art setting.
