Tintype supports distinctive UK-based artists. Our gallery programme is informed and led by artists' practices. Once a year we offer the gallery as a project space leading to a subsequent show.
Tintype also helps emerging artists develop their work critically and commercially. Annually we offer a solo show to a young artist who has recently graduated from art school.
Tintype currently represents eight established artists – Kayde Anobile, An Gee Chan, Suki Chan, George Eksts, Serena Korda, Flora Parrott, Alice Walton and Joby Williamson.
The directors of Tintype are Teresa Grimes and Pat Treasure. You can find us in Hatton Garden, the old jewellery quarter of central London.
