The work of Studio Bilbey


Ian Bilbey is a graduate of the Royal College of Art. Passionate about cars from an earlyage, Bilbey has owned a multitude of classic cars, from Porsches to Jaguars, vintageracing cars to traditional British sports cars. He is a competing member of the VintageSports Car Club.His current collection of artworks includes pigment prints, screen-prints, and mixed

media paintings. Screen-printing is a printing technique whereby a mesh is used totransfer ink - or in Studio Bilbey's case paint - onto a substrate, except in areas madeimpermeable to the ink by a blocking stencil. A blade or squeegee is moved across thescreen to fill the open mesh apertures , and a reverse stroke then causes the screen totouch the substrate momentarily along a line of contact. This causes the paint to wet thesubstrate and be pulled out of the mesh apertures as the screen springs back after theblade has passed.Each colour a separate printing.Those that are termed 'unique' may have one element that is a straight forward layer ofscreen-printing, but they consist mainly of hand made marks.Bilbey's illustrative graphic artwork is all hand drawn - including all the lettering andsponsors logo's, after extensive research into each cars race history and the graphics itcarried.Bilbey's clients include: The British Museum, The Victoria and Albert Museum, Vogue,Honda, Jaguar, Volkswagen, Penguin Books, London Transport, The DailyTelegraph,Vodafone, The BBC, Royal Mail, British Airways, Terence Conran, Paul Smith,Issey Miyake, David Bailey and Eric Clapton.
