This week we will be focusing on DKT Artworks, an incredibly versatile, well established London based company who offer a myriad of high end finishes within the field of decorative arts. First founded in 1979 by three arts graduates – Niki Davies, Steve Keeling and Sean Trowbridge, DKT has gone from strength to strength, developing a formidable skill base with a team of around 30 in-house staff with expertise spanning Painting & Sculpture, Industrial design, Carving, Gilding, Restoration, Trompe L’Oeil, Textiles, Sign-writing, Specialist decoration, Graphics, Stucco, Bas relief, Paint finishes and a host of other Decorative finishes. Whatever the project DKT can offer tremendous flexibility, from working on-site to finishing projects completely in-house and ready for transportation and fitting by other contractors. They work closely with designers, architects and private individuals to ensure smooth running of the project . DKT boasts a truly impressive worldwide client list and a vast portfolio of completed projects spanning a wide range of venues and disciplines – from painted panels featured on award-winning super-yachts to distressed finishes on the interiors of upmarket London restaurants and bars. Below we have showcased just some of the gilded decorative artwork that DKT have completed. The pictures below are a very small part of their extensive portfolio.
