About the artist
London–based illustrator, ceramicist and textile designer, John Booth is renowned for his graphic aesthetic featuring multi–layered collages of textures and colours. Born in Scotland in 1984 and raised in Cumbria, Booth moved to London in 2004, where he graduated with a BA in fashion print design at Central Saint Martins in 2009. He has since taught as a lecturer both at Central Saint Martins as well as at the University of Westminster.
Booth's works are distinct and identifiable,characterised by vibrant and youthful multi–layered collages bursting with colour and texture. His instinctive, un–laboured collage techniques combined with painted and drawn elements bring together rough–and–ready textures with luminous colours for a touching sensitivity. Booth’s ability to navigate the boundaries of illustration, art and fashion make him a versatile practitioner, with the freedom to make work in multiple contexts. Booth has worked for several fashion brands including Zandra Rhodes, John Galliano, Ashish, Christopher Shannon and most recently, Globetrotter and FENDI.
