Intoart is hugely delighted to announce that Ntiense Eno-Amooquaye has been selected as a recipient of the Paul Hamlyn Foundation Award for Artists 2022.
The ‘Awards for Artists’ support individuals at a timely moment in their careers, giving them the freedom to develop their creative ideas and contributing to their personal and professional growth.
Each year, a panel of four new judges selects the winners on the basis of talent, promise and need, as well as achievement. This year awards of £60,000 were made to five visual artists.
‘New memories are important for me, they come from reading, writing, painting, performing and film making. This Paul Hamlyn award will help me with what I’m doing, being an artist, to keep on in the future, to keep the level and overview of ideas going. I will be able to perform more scenes to build more history in the future.’ Ntiense Eno-Amooquaye
‘2022 has been a superb year for Ntiense both in the studio with new exciting bodies of work emerging and publicly as her practice reaches new international audiences. The PHF Award is a significant milestone for any artist, with an impressive list of past recipients. Intoart has worked for the past 22 years to address the significant barriers faced by people with learning disabilities practicing as artists so we are thrilled that Ntiense is receiving the recognition now that she so richly deserves. The award will enable a freedom to realise future ambitions – we can’t wait to see where it takes her next.’
Ella Ritchie, Director, Intoart
