Henrik Vibskov Graphics Works at Pool Gallery opens on February 6th 2010 through to March 6th 2010
Some might call Henrik Vibskov a jack-of-all-trades, and it is true that Vibskov shows his innovative fashion designs in Paris, exhibits his artwork at established institutions such as PS1, MoMA, the Palais de Tokio and MU, and makes musical collaborations with the likes of Anders Trentemøller and Mikael Simpson. However for Vibskov, these seemingly different creative realms are not separate – it is intrinsic to his philosophy that they blend together, resulting in an all-inclusive Henrik Vibskov experience.

Kate Simcoe, a Design Craft graduate from Oxford and Cherwell Valley College, has designed numerous different prints. Her work is essentially story telling. Kate’s project began with a collection of cigar bands that her mother had collected as a child.
Kate wanted to know all about her life at the time of collecting, events and experiences that came to mind from the time period. She wanted to design a collection of wall papers that were not reliant on fashion or trend but could still appeal to a wide audience. The collection is very vibrant, the colour palette being from a collection of my mums things. It reads like a story book, incorporating daily life, such as pets and friends to slightly darker issues such as injuries and arguments, something which Kate also tried to show through the colour scheme
