Silkscreen specialist Anna Marrow’s recent work has focused on the accelerated pace of life in the 21st century, and the random messages and commands we are bombarded with. As she says: "I relish the chaos and diversity of modern urban living, and try to capture this in my prints." Read more

Anna Marrow studied Art at Bristol in the late 1990’s, before going on to study Communication Design at St Martin's in London. Her career has accelerated since then, as she has quickly compiled an impressive portfolio of commercial clients, and forged a distinctive style. Her work has been commissioned and bought by Heals, Selfridges and the BBC, for example, and she has twice exhibited in the Contemporary Print Show at the Barbican in London.

Marrow works mainly with silkscreen, enjoying the variety of marks that can be manipulated and personalized, from bold splashes of colour to delicate drawn lines, from scraps of text to photographic images. Typically, she builds up colourful layers using hand-drawn and painted images, as well as scraps of text and packaging from her ever-increasing collection of printed ephemera and photographs.

Her work is also infused by visits to Kuala Lumpur, Saigon and Singapore, and a love of music. The Jazzseries, for example, captures the energy, movement and passion of 1950’s musicians.
