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 artists – Kayde Anobile, An Gee Chan, Suki Chan, George Eksts, Adam Gillam, Flora Parrott, Alice Walton and Joby Williamson.
The directors of Tintype are Teresa Grimes and Pat Treasure.
