The thirteen artists destined to define the new art landscape will exhibit at Art15; selected from University of the Arts London’s Class of 2014, the chosen artists are drawn from nearly 10,000 graduating students from Camberwell College of Arts, Central Saint Martins, Chelsea College of Arts, London College of Communication, London College of Fashion and Wimbledon College of Arts.

 

The artists are from the prestigious network of UAL alumni, fellow graduates of their alma mater include Peter Doig, Sarah Lucas, Isaac Julien, Anish Kapoor, Chris Ofili and Steve McQueen.

 

The chosen artists for 2015 are: Jon Baker, Sophie Birch, Alexander Burgess, Fiona Eastwood, Mia Faithfull, Hiba Ismail, Jeff Ko, Jim McLernon, Ragna Mouritzen, Chloe Newman, Miroslav Pomichal, Daniel Silva and Mette Sterre.

Many of the selected artists have already attracted the attention of media, collectors, awards and prizes, including selection for the Catlin Art Prize, Saatchi New Sensations, and the Hans Brinker Painting Prize.

 

The works exhibited by UAL Now represent a phenomenal opportunity to spot future stars and buy works direct from the artists, offering an unrivalled chance to invest in pieces by the next generation of masters.

 

Stephen Beddoe, Director of Student Enterprise and Employability at University of the Arts London said: “UAL Now at Art15 is a fitting legacy for our previous fine art showcasing programme, Future Map. The UAL Now stand will showcase some of the best new works emerging from fine art at UAL, launching the careers of some of our exciting new graduates to curators, collectors, buyers and audiences at the world class Art15 fair."
