Kinetika is an internationally renowned company, specialising in creating large-scale hand-painted silks. We have a 22-year track record of combining world-class design with community projects to produce spectacular outdoor commissions that engage diverse audiences wherever we work.

Founded by artistic director Ali Pretty in 1997, and inspired by her training in carnival arts in Trinidad and India, Kinetika now has an unrivalled reputation for working with local communities on projects that change the way people feel about where they live from local community walks in Essex to ceremonial boulevards and local high streets across the UK, to the Great Wall of China and the heart of Kolkata.

The charitable arm, Kinetika People, is known for its high-quality community engagement work, running participatory programmes, workshops and artist training schemes, which aim to nurture new artistic talent and engage communities, raising aspirations and building a sense of place.
