Underway Studio is an illustration and printmaking collective based in Brixton, South London. Founded in 2015 by six graduates as a space to continue working and developing as young designers, the collective works collaboratively across silk-screen, lino and digital print mediums. The current members of Underway Studio are: Aiden Barefoot, Anna Schmidt, Caitlin Parks, and Melissa North.
Architecture, form, texture and colour are the main influences behind Underway Studio’s work. The use of physical print processes means their visual language is both playful and distinctive, incorporating photography, collage, drawing and any happy accidents along the way.
Underway Studio exhibited at Of Cabbages and Kings in 2019 with the show Printed Spaces, a fully screen printed show exploring the architecture of London’s cultural spaces.
