Intoart – Collect 2022


Intoart returned to Collect International Fair for Contemporary Craft and Design at Somerset House 2022. Following Intoart’s debut in 2020 when we were awarded ‘Outstanding Display by a Gallery’.

For Collect 2022 Intoart showcased a bold presentation of new works by two artists from the collective – Christian Ovonlen and Clifton Wright. Large scale silk textiles by Christian Ovonlen and hand glazed ceramics by Clifton Wright bought together the work of two artist-makers that approach figurative and abstract elements in their work from very different starting points.

In an award ceremony at Collect 2022, Christian Ovonlen was announced winner of the Brookfield Properties Craft Award, in partnership with the Crafts Council.

Now in its third year, the Brookfield Properties Craft Award is one of the most significant craft prizes in the UK. The Award recognises an artist who significantly contributes to the story of contemporary craft and making in the UK.
