Sydney-based Kate Banazi makes silkscreen prints and sculptures all about the interaction of colour, movement, light and shadow. She is known for swearing her head off and making linear graphic silkscreen prints on paper and Perspex. Kate studied Fashion Design at Central Saint Martins in London which encouraged her to fall in love with art, research and creating forms.

Recently, Berlei collaborated with Kate to create a series of custom silkscreen prints for their sports collections, inspired by movement and power, and modelled by Serena Williams. Kate’s silkscreen prints were chosen for display in the Qantas Business Lounge at Melbourne Airport.

Kate is most inspired by politics, music, and today’s youth, and as a strong advocate for equality and representation, each year works with a non-profit organisation or donates a piece of artwork to a like-minded charity.

As a kid, I loved to draw…
All the time, especially exquisite corpse.
I can’t stop listening to…
Loyle Carner, podcasts, Womack & Womack, Riz Ahmed, Movie soundtracks, SZA, so many playlists made by friends.
My dream project would be…
A big wild garden. A collaboration with Dior menswear or working with my son.
I love collaborating with…
Writers. I think the combination of illustration and writing always results in a wonderful harmony of new and interesting ideas. Also anyone working in hospo, food or drink – I think a lot of really exciting projects of mine have been in that space!
I do my best work when…
There's music.
A creative area I’d like to explore more is…
Installations in public spaces.
