Lindsay Seers works in London and lives on the Isle of Sheppey. She studied at the Slade School of Fine Art, University College London (BA Hons, Sculpture and Media 1991-94) and at Goldsmiths College, University of London (MA Fine Art 1999-2001), where she now works as a lecturer on MA Fine Art (0.2).
What constitutes Lindsay’s artistic practice is not mere storytelling, but a matrix where there is no formal separation between the conceptual investigation of the act of photography, the camera as apparatus, the common desire for film and photography to act as evidence of events, and the complex historical and personal syncronicities of events themselves.
Lindsay’s works are in a number of collections including Tate collection, Arts Council collection, Artangel collection and the collection of MONA, Tasmania. She has won several prestigious grants and awards such as the Sharjah Art Foundation Production Award, UAE; Le Jeu de Paume production award for the Toulouse Festival, France and the Paul Hamlyn Award.

Carleen De Sözer was born in Birmingham in the late seventies and is widely regarded as one of London’s most skilled and diverse aerosol and airbrush artists. She has found a place on the International street art scene with her highly appealing Afrocentric, Afrofuturistic and often golden paintings. Carleen’s distinct work can be seen all across London. Her most popular murals to date include Golden Utopia, You Have The Keys, Golden Era Hip Hop Raised Me and Grime Lords.
Carleen says, "I create art, firstly for myself – I enjoy tapping into that creative space in my imagination that allows me to turn thought into physical pictures. Sharing my art is a natural part of the creative process, we build on everything that exists... a thought... I believe that my art is a re-creation of every visual and thought that I have received from the creative flow that is life".
Rabiya Choudhry is a visual artist whose work explores the themes of identity and cultural displacement in contemporary British society with a darkly comedic approach.
Her work expresses the complicated coupling of eastern and western cultures in richly vibrant portrayals of the different autobiographical factors present in her own life. She makes paintings; from large scale canvases, miniatures to murals, small painted sculptures to fabric works.
Rabiya was born in Glasgow 1982 and described by the Scotsman newspaper as, ‘one of the wildest and most distinctive artists to come out of a Scottish art school in many years.’ She has exhibited both nationally and internationally with selected exhibitions including, COCO!NUTS! at Transmission Gallery (2018), Standard Bearers at Edinburgh Art Festival (2018), Signs Of The Times at Tramway (2017) and DCA Thomson at Dundee Contemporary Arts (2016).
Greta Davies is a Fine Artist working across many media including paint, print, digital photography, stop motion, projection and installation.
Over the years her works have made bounds into the world of space and architecture and have become more in tune with the existing architecture found in our everyday lives, using this as the starting point for her works.
Greta is interested in the unnoticed and not easily accessible places that usually pass us by in our everyday lives, wanting to open up these spaces to the viewer, making them more noticed and seen in a different light than before.
Greta uses lines to create patterns, extending the space and the visual experience for the viewer. The awkwardness of the spaces is used to an advantage when making work: expanding into corners and crevices, under staircases and behind doorways, stretching their bounds, filling the spaces where the viewer cannot fully stand.
The lines and patterns encourage the viewer to move around and through the space, and the work ultimately creates a more optically interesting viewing experience.
Florence Mytum creates work that crosses between painting, sculpture and site-specific installation. She playfully explores the physical and aesthetic qualities of a wide range of materials, questioning sensory hierarchies through investigating how we engage with and understand the world on a physical, material and bodily level.
Florence completed her MA in painting at the Slade School of Fine Art in 2018, and BA in Painting at Wimbledon College of Art in 2015.
Recent exhibitions include; Material Instincts at Kaleidoscope Gallery (2018), Girls Just Wanna Have Fun at Unit 3 Projects (2018) and 31 Celsius at ASC Gallery (2017).
Gayle Chong Kwan was born in Edinburgh, Scotland, and lives and works in London. Her large-scale photographic, installation, sound, participatory, and video work is exhibited nationally and internationally, both in major galleries and in the public realm.
Gayle’s work is an ongoing investigation into simulacra and the sublime, which she explores through immersive environments and mise-en-scenes, constructed in states of resolution and dissolution between imagined futures, alternative presents, and fictional mechanisms.
For her ident, Gayle has created an exciting and engaging interpretation of the ITV logo out of used milk bottles, referring to ITV’s role at the heart of everyday life as well as the culture landscape of Britain. She has built up and cut into the used milk bottles, referencing aspects of iconic British landmarks, such as St Paul’s Cathedral in London, De la Warr Pavilion at Bexhill on Sea, Albert Dock in Liverpool, Blackpool Tower, Lincoln Cathedral, Giants Causeway in Northern Ireland, Edinburgh Castle and the Millennium Centre in Wales. The sculptural work looks like a landscape when viewed from the side.
Gayle has developed large-scale installations using discarded and waste packaging for
institutions including the Southbank Centre, Delfina Foundation, and the Centro Cultural de Moravia in
Liz West graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 2007. Her broad body of work encompasses wall-based artwork, sculpture, and site-specific installations, where she mixes luminous colour and radiant light.
Liz's investigation into the relationship between colour and light is often realised through an engagement between materiality and a given site. By playing and adjusting colour, Liz brings out the intensity and composition of her spatial arrangements.
For her ITV ident, Liz uses coloured mirrors to reflect the light of the logo across the space, creating a bright and vibrant effect.
Liz has been commissioned worldwide by institutions and organisations including Natural History Museum, National Trust, and National Science and Media Museum. Permanent works are sited in London, Manchester and Bury.
