Mark Kennedy – Mosaic Artist

Wednesday, January 20th, 2021

I am a mosaic artist whose work has been on on the streets on Manchester and beyond for 30 years…notably Affleck’s palace and the Etihad stadium. I have made untold amounts of work for untold amounts of people ..a list that I couldn’t possibly detail. A list that would go from street cleaners to hotels to department stores to art institutions to cafes from gangsters to princes to billionaires to the homeless for film stars to magicians for footballers and alchoholics from high lamas to burglars…I think you get my drift…from high end to lowlife…everybody’s pound note is worth exactly the same every publication is worthy of a reader..my most proud moment and career high was i drank the ashes of Bernard Manning. And if you buy me a Guinness one day I’ll tell you the story…

Watch youtube videos about my work here, and here, and here!

Gaby Schofield

Friday, November 27th, 2020

Gaby Schofield’s paintings explore an area between femininity, nature and the human body. She takes inspiration from decorative pattern featuring naturalistic designs, using their flattened, sign-like imagery to construct spaces which advance and recede. Organic shapes climb and weave through these spaces, sometimes plantlike, and sometimes creating a sense of the feminine body. In these constructed spaces, Schofield aims to create an aesthetic that is both futuristic and feminine.

Stefanie Trow

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2020

Stefanie Trow was born in South Yorkshire in 1982. She pursued her talent and love for art from an early age, encouraged by both parents, aspiring artists themselves. After graduating in Visual Arts in 2004, Stefanie spent a year travelling around the world, something she repeated more recently with her young family for 3 months whilst on maternity leave. Being immersed in different cultures and meeting all walks of life has undoubtedly influenced her art and ideas. 

Stefanie’s practice centre’s on the human gaze, inviting a relationship between the viewer and the viewed, questioning the act of seeing and being seen. She creates environments that hold the viewer’s attention; slowing down the process of looking to contrast with the sometimes-frantic pace of everyday life.

Her work stems from an assortment of images, both found and taken from life, predominately focusing on the figure. These images are carefully selected and cropped at crucial points, often obstructing or restricting the gaze, making us consider what can’t be seen or what exists outside the framework of the canvas.

Layering and removing of the paint plays a pivotal role in the creation of her work. In this way, each piece has its own history. Using a variety of tools and techniques, combined with painstakingly selected colour palettes, Stefanie creates work that is bold and vibrant in both colour and composition.

Stefanie and her work have featured in Musicians Baaba Maal’s music video “Gilli Men”. She now exhibits in Manchester and London, with her work collected globally.

Steve Forrest / Workers’ Photos

Monday, February 3rd, 2020

I am a Manchester-born photographer and artist who has recently returned to my home city after 25 years away. I have been a regular contributor to the New York Times, shooting portraits of famous people, interesting people, the odd nutter, together with cultural stories. My work has appeared in National Geographic, Newsweek, Time, Stern, International Herald Tribune, Intelligent Life, and The Guardian Weekend magazine. I am also a contract photographer with the International AIDS Society and The Union of Tuberculosis and Lung Disease, as well as being a member of Panos Pictures in London. In 2015 I completed an MFA in Fine Art at Goldsmith’s in London. So when I’m not shooting for clients or engaged in photography personal projects, I can be found working on my artwork in my studio surrounded by heaps of negatives, prints, a scalpel, and a pair scissors.

I am a sculptor who works in a cycle of play and reflection, seeking to bring thoughts and feelings into the real world; and so to capture something from the onwards rush of life.


I particularly like site-specific work and I recently completed a large-scale project at Victoria Baths, which is to be retained on indefinite loan. But I also enjoy private commissions and I love to find common ground between my own excitements and those of a client.
