Pots and Podiums – St Mary’s Hospital, Paddington

Yoshiko Phillips and Mawuena Kattah’s site-specific commission ‘Pots and Podiums’ is currently installed at St Marys Hospital, Paddington the first of two installations with the second installation taking place at Charing Cross Hospital, Hammersmith in March.

Yoshiko Phillips’ bespoke vinyl wall based decals create a series of podiums and plinths in direct conversation with framed prints, drawings and paintings of pots by Mawuena Kattah.

For ‘Pots and Podiums’ Kattah has drawn from a significant body of work, created since joining the Intoart Studio in 2007. Made during her residency in the V&A ceramics studio and shown for the first time are Kattah’s series of six pastel drawings of pots, many drawn directly from works in the V&A collections.

Yoshiko Phillips has a bold, graphic illustrative style full of complex motifs, dazzling colours and engaging characters. For ‘Pots and Podiums’ she has created architecturally scaled, wall based ornaments inspired by gothic and medieval ironwork, masonry and woodwork.

Brick Brewery Mural Commission

Recently approached by our neighbours Brick Brewery, we have created the first large mural on the walls of their newly renovated Peckham Taproom. Intoart artists Andre Williams and Yoshiko Phillips worked collaboratively to combine illustrations of Baroque architecture and Classical sculptures with a vibrant summer colour palette, all in good time for the launch of Brick’s new Citrus Sours.
