Cat Phillipps b.1972 Scottish artist and cultural activist, one half of kennardphillipps

Trained and working as a master printer since 1997 Cat pursued a collaborative practice with Peter Kennard in response to the invasion of Iraq in 2003. Their infamous study of Tony Blair, Photo Op, is described by Jonathon Jones in the guardian as “the definitive work of art about the war that started with the invasion of Iraq in 2003.” Their work is held in the collections of numerous UK museums and galleries, including most recently the National Portrait Gallery’s aquisition of Study for a Head IV and Profit, in 2019. They produce work for public and private commissions, publications, campaign groups, exhibitions and run workshops open to the public.

Cat lives and works in Hackney, London.

New paintings by Cat Phillipps to help propel you through dismal times and the run up to the General Election.

With uncanny timing, as seen on streets all around the country the younger half of kennardphillipps, Cat Phillipps has gone feral and attacked the subject with a ferocity unseen in painting in over half a century.

TRAPPED offers large scale paintings and a view of a process never seen before whilst somehow echoing great troublemakers and masters in art down through the centuries.

Enter the studio for a wild and intelligent reset to help propel you through these generally dismal days. Come and have the wax wiped from your eyes.
