Ntiense Eno Amooquaye integrates the visual, written and spoken word through print, text, image and live performance. The Shadow, her collaborative performance with Paul Davidson of Corali Dance Company, was performed at Tate Exchange in October 2016. Amooquaye has recently completed a new commission for CW+, the charity for Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, as part of their visual arts programme. Her solo exhibition Hera Master Come Down was at the Poetry Library in 2014.

Mawuena Kattah’s practice brings people and pattern together in complex, vibrant compositions that entangle an aesthetic and social syntax. Kattah presents her new artist’s book at the V&A Museum in November, alongside new film work documenting her varied explorations of pattern and portraiture. Her solo exhibition Ceramics, Textiles and Works on Paper was at Tenderbooks, London in 2016. Kattah completed a five-month placement in the V&A ceramics studio in 2016.

Since joining the Intoart studio in 2010, Kevin Jacobs has developed a number of significant works that draw upon his interest in film and landscape. His recent set of five large-scale landscape paintings take inspiration from Ansel Adams’ photographs of the American West. He has presented his work at events at Tate Modern in 2013 and Tate Britain in 2014.

Selected Intoart artists have exhibited in a range of galleries and museums including the Whitechapel Gallery (2009), Tate Modern ‘No Soul For Sale’ (2010), Studio Voltaire (2012/2008/2007) and MAD Musée, Belgium (2011).
