DOTTO STUDIO

Monday, April 1st, 2024

Dotto is a creative studio working with people + brands.

It’s an artsy store selling prints, editions and original artwork.

Oh, and it’s also a person — who creates work for people with something to say. 

The person is Danielle Molyneux — a type-twisting artist and designer. Her work features powerful messages told through playful typography. She blends vibrant colour and a graphic style with emotive, evocative words. Big, bold, impactful work that takes up space, makes some noise and speaks with conviction.  

Based in Manchester, UK. 
Working globally.

Designing words to live by.

Mat Greaves

Monday, January 29th, 2024

Mat Greaves is a cartoonist and painter from Manchester. 

He has been published in Private Eye and Viz magazine, as well as several comics anthologies. 

Mat is also a founding member of Underground Kingdom Comix, a collective of UK small press cartoonists.

His work has been described as “funny”, “cartoony” and “slapstick” – but also “intelligent”, so bear that in mind. 

Mat is happiest when doing his own thing; he gets more out of it that way.

Founded by artist Rob Lenihan, Brink Studio brings together the strands of his varied career as a mural artist, Hip Hop performer, children’s illustrator, portrait artist, writer, and product designer. His love of collectible toys, comic books, classical art, act as an accessible vehicle to look deep within ourselves to reflect on who we are.

Using recognisable shared cultural icons, street art motifs, typography, psychological theories, and philosophy, Brink Studio explores how growing up and navigating the world in a western urban environment can be an exciting yet complicated journey. Each work of art is created to encourage a journey of reflection whilst empathising with modern urban cultural experiences.

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!
