Trini-Maria Katakwe (TMK)

Scenographer + Visual Artist

Trini-Maria Katakwe (TMK) is a British Nigerian-Zambian Scenographer and Visual Artist from London. The expansion of her creativity has been explored academically and professionally through scenography (set & production design), architecture, illustration and graphic design. The message behind her work is to uplift those who are underrepresented and showcase them in a vibrant outlook.

 

Upon obtaining a BA Architecture (Hons) degree from the University of Portsmouth in 2017, this was her introduction towards her passion for how scenic design impacts our perception towards experiences. Transcending people into alternate environments. After working professionally within architecture, she delved into the world of set and experiential design. Working corporately on stage design, events and production. In 2022, she graduated with an MA Scenography degree from the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. Gaining valuable insight into the fundamentals of designing for opera, theatre and devised performances.

 

Further career development involves being selected for the ‘Originals Creator Network’ a partnership between Adidas London and GUAP Magazine. The 12-month program featured 20 emerging creatives from London that participated in creative workshops, mentoring and received commissions to work on live Originals projects.


TMK currently works within live set and experiential design across music, fashion and culture. Creating scenography that delves deeper into shaping experiences through the worlds she creates within her art.
