Joanna Brinton specialises in socially engaged projects that involve print, people and place. She trained at Central St Martin’s College of Art and Design, graduating in 2001 with BA (Hons) Fine Art and went on to complete a Masters with Distinction in Book Arts at Camberwell College of Art in 2013. Joanna was also an Associate Artist at Plymouth College of Art between 2014-15 and continues to make work in London and the South West.

Her large scale prints, flags and temporary structures respond to the place and people she works with and include permanent pieces for the National Trust, the exterior of Great Ormond Street Hospital and Central Venture Park, Peckham. Using research-based practices that draw connections between current and historical events and objects, she has undertaken commissions for Southwark Council.

Joanna works with letterpress, screen printing and lithography to produce publications and print works that accompany her projects. You can see work from her recent series Material + Method in Copeland Park’s Social bar.

Joanna also designs print material for galleries and institutions. Her clients have included South London Gallery, UAL, UCL and Whitechapel Gallery. Recent works by Joanna have included Intercity 18 at Intercity House for Plymouth Art Weekender and, interestingly, she joined local horticulturalists to explore plants traditionally used to make tea in Tasseography (Future Tea) at the Pump House Gallery in London.
