Johanna Basford Art Prints and Limited Edition Prints

About the artist: Johanna Basford

Limited Edition Prints and Collectable Art Prints from Global Art Prints

Artist: Johanna Basford

From a very young age Johanna Basford has always drawn. This early passion for art has been an enduring feature of Johanna’s career. After school she went to Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in Dundee and studied printed textiles, specialising in silk screen printing. She graduated with a degree in Printed Textiles and then spent a couple of years making hand-printed wallpapers and fabrics before establishing herself as an illustrator.

Johanna Basford specialises in finely detailed monochrome pen and ink illustrations, and recently came to the media’s attention after she conceived #TwitterPicture, a crowd-sourcing exercise in which she asked tweeters to suggest images that she then compiled over a 48 hour period into one giant montage, letting those involved follow her progress using the picture-sharing site Twitpic.

Johanna Basford creativity is cultivated by a curious imagination and a delight in the fantastic. Much of her art work has roots in the flora and fauna observed during childhood at her parents' fish farm in rural Aberdeenshire. In 2001, I packed my bags and headed to Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in Dundee, where I graduated 4 years later with my degree in Printed Textiles.

Johanna Basford art prints starts life as a simple pencil sketch, evolving into a rambling pen and ink drawing (usually over several sheets of paper). She loves the tactile nature of the materials and the joy of smudgy fingerprints. Joanna feels limited edition prints created by computer generated work lacks soul and depth of character – whereas hand drawing captures a sense of energy and charm which no pixel can ever replicate.

Johanna Basford art works are in many art collections including: The Crafts Council at the Victoria and Albert Museum, Channel 4, The Scottish Parliament and Tate Modern.
