about

Katy Stubbs (b. 1992) was born in Hong Kong but grew up in London. She studied at the School of Visual Arts in New York. Her work has been exhibited in Venice, Berlin, Washington and London and featured in the British Vogue (2021), My Art Guides (2020), W Magazine (2020), FAD Magazine (2020), gallerytalk.net (2020), It’s Nice That (2019), The Art Gorgeous (2019), Horst und Edeltraut (2017) and Artforum (2016).

Based in Brixton, Stubbs predominantly works in ceramics, using the hand-made forms as a canvas for her interest in the tradition of storytelling. The socio-historical associations that this medium has, in particular with the Greek tradition, are a constant source of inspiration. Katy completed a residency at ALMA ZEVI, Venice in March-April 2019, and her first solo exhibition Price Choppers took place at ALMA ZEVI, London, UK in October 2020. Since then, she has been a recurrent presence in the gallery's programme. Her work has been included in the forthcoming Every Woman Biennial, London, UK as well as in the touring museum exhibition Welcome to My World: Ceramics with Narrative which will open at the Burton in Bideford in Summer 2021.
