Arty Tart

More formally known as Linda Griffiths,

is an interdisciplinary artist from London.

Linda Griffiths has always enjoyed art, and after a few years of studying ceramics, she began working at Richmond Adult College teaching ceramics (1998). She then went on to study BA Public Art at University of Surrey (2002), majoring in ceramics, alongside learning mosaic and photography, and received a first class honours for this degree. After graduating, Linda began working with The Avenue Club, a social club for the retired, in Kew, London, where she facilitated workshops. While at The Avenue Club, Linda got noticed by housing association - Central & Cecil, for which she has been commissioned to do several pieces of public art across the years, along with numerous workshops. Alongside these pieces, Linda has additionally created public art for variety of other companies and social groups. Public art is proved to be a good medium to unify communities, and with their participation the work remains unblemished. This has been particularly successful in Butts Farm, Hanworth.

Linda is also a founding member of The Treatment Rooms Collective, a group of likeminded artists, who use art to enable social comment. Among many things, they have created two mosaiced vehicles "The Tiki Love Truck" and "The Zulu Taxi".

The Tiki Love Truck, one of their first projects as a collective, was the winning vehicle at the first Art Car Parade in Manchester, 2007. It has since been on display at the Victoria & Albert Museum various festivals around the country.
