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.

Ntiense Eno Amooquaye has been awarded an AIDF grant by Arts Council England and the British Council to support the research and development of a new body of visual artwork and live performance informed by her experience and responses to the site of the Texture Museum (originally Flax Museum) in Kortrijk, Flanders.
Her time spent in Belgium over the coming few months, supported by host organisation Wit.h, will create new material that responds to the context and history of the flax industry, lace and linen production.
We are delighted to announce that a trio of works by Mawuena Kattah have been acquired by The Arts Council Collection, one of the UK’s largest national loan collections of modern and contemporary art. Kattah’s work is amongst 45 works by 29 artists that have been acquired for the collection in 2016-2017.

Ntiense Eno Amooquaye’s commission for Chelsea and Westminster Hospital as part of the CW+ visual arts programme is now installed alongside other commissioned artists, including Brian Eno, Isaac Julien and Richard Woods.
In response to the commission Ntiense created a new large scale work on paper, incorporating drawings of the Italian Gardens in Hyde Park and new poetry developed from extensive reading at the National Poetry Library.
‘The poem is about inside and outside, the weather, the colours of flowers and plants. I wanted to take people on a journey through gardens.’ Ntiense Eno Amooquaye
The artwork is now displayed on level one just around the corner from the most valuable works in the collection by Veronese and opposite the longest work in the collection by Bert Irvin.
