Ella Freire is a silk screen printer based at her studio in London. After working for many years as an interior designer, Ella returned to her love of art and especially screen printing. Having a passion for classic cars, amongst other vintage and architectural interests, she was inspired to produce her limited edition print collection of classic and super car artworks and has been working on these for the last few years.
Ella also works on creating many commissions of one off bespoke pieces for private car and motorbike collectors and for several classic car showrooms here and abroad
Stories of her Grandfather Aubrey Esson Scott, racing his Bugatti in the 1930's and also racing in the 1934 Mille Miglia in an Aston Martin, has fuelled her interest in these wonderful classic cars!
The shapes and style of these beautifully designed cars are a huge inspiration to Ella. After a lot of experimenting with her printing process to achieve her signature style, this now allows her to highlight specific areas of the wonderful chrome detailing of each car, in a simple deconstruction of colours, which is then built back up using a layering mix of metallic, gloss and matt substrates. These prints are then framed in flame polished acrylic with an aluminium backing.
