About me
Trini-Maria Katakwe (TMK) is a British Nigerian-Zambian Visual Artist and Designer from North London. The work she creates is based on her identity, culture, faith and spirituality. Art and Design have been a focal point in the development of her academic and professional experience. The expansion of her creativity has been explored through scenography (set & production design), architecture, fine art, graphic design, illustration, and photography. TMK’s ongoing project the ‘Bold Series’ uses vivid colours and fragmentation to explore her interpretation of how she views the world. The message behind her work is to uplift those who are underrepresented and showcase them in a vibrant outlook. 'by grace I create' Instagram: @trinimariak Website: trinimk.com
