Continuous Cities’ is the moniker for the ongoing collaboration between artists Katy Binks & Mark McClure - who create unique serigraphs inspired by the relationship between art and the built environment.
The works they create as ‘Continuous Cities’ are each one off pieces that capture the spontaneous, expressive energy of Katy’s experiments, and the bold, hard-edged, graphic aesthetic that drives Mark’s work. They both draw their inspiration from their London surroundings - taking cues and motifs from the built environment and blending them with a structured, architectural aesthetic.
Katy studied graphic arts before going onto to do an MA in printmaking whilst Mark’s background in visual design informed his developing arts practice. This graphic aesthetic is the foundation underpinning both their approaches to printmaking - with both exploring relationships between colour, shape and proportion. Mark’s considered use of composition and negative space complements, and is challenged by, Katy’s bolder, looser approach to colour and mark making.
They have both exhibited in the UK and abroad - and have worked extensively with organisations and brands to bring their art into the public realm.
