Louise Bristow

Louise was born in London and studied painting at Gloucestershire College of Arts and Technology before moving to Brighton to study printmaking at Brighton University. She is one of the co-directors of East Side Print CIC.

Having grown up in the UK in the 1980s, Louise has always been interested in the political context of Europe at the end of the Cold War. She was lucky enough to visit the USSR and a few years later Poland and Berlin just months after the fall of the Berlin Wall.

These experiences, alongside subsequent trips abroad and research, inform her work. She particularly enjoys using screen print in combination with collage.
