Trinity Buoy Wharf Tenant Focus- Artyface
26 March 2015
Trinity Buoy Wharf artist, Maud Milton, founded Artyface in 1998. The company specialises in making mosaics and ceramic murals for public spaces, playgrounds and schools.
Working closely with over 4000 people each year, Maud brings ideas to life using both small and large scale pieces, designed and produced with school children and members of the local community.
In one of their most recent projects, Artyface transformed parts of an unused and poorly lit playground at Christopher Hatton Primary School in Holborn. Over a number of weeks Maud and the team worked with the pupils to create bright and colourful space inspired by the rainforest. The project was received well both by the students, staff and the community, with Channel 4 Presenter and local resident John Snow showing his support by cutting the ribbon at the official launch.
Having had a studio here for 8 years and even designing and installing a piece for Faraday School, Maud has been an integral part of Trinity Buoy Wharf creative community.
In that time, she has seen the area grow into an arts hub where she has built friendships and developed important business links with other organisations, all inspired by the unique and historic riverside setting.
Her Container City Studio provides a quiet solace from the hustle and bustle of London life whilst reflecting her passion for using recycled materials.
“Working at Trinity Buoy Wharf is inspiring for a visual person: the amazing views, the large city skies over the river, the buildings, the boats and of course the water. Where else in such a sprawling metropolis do you have studios on two major rivers, the Lea and the Thames? I love the light, the weather and the people it attracts. Other tenants are helpful and friendly and it is a unique and special place, with tonnes of creativity and energy.” Maud Milton
Artyface is in good company at the Wharf – working alongside an interesting mix of tenants including English National Opera, The Royal Drawing School, University of East London, Faraday School and a range of music producers, photographers, artists and fashion designers.
