The Catlin Guide 2015 New Artists in the UK launches at London Art Fair
Fanny Wickström ‘Frances’ 2014 Chicken wire, papier mache, clay, acrylic, fabric and fake hair. 55x25x25 cm.

LONDON.- The sixth edition of The Catlin Guide 2015 New Artists in the UK will be unveiled at The London Art Fair 2015, 21st – 25th January. The Catlin Guide will be presented on stand P25 alongside a selection of work by featured artists from the book. This fully-illustrated limited edition publication introduces 40 of the most exciting new graduate and postgraduate artists from UK art schools.

New features this year include an introductory interview with editor Justin Hammond by art critic Freire Barnes, and interviews with each artist detailing their up-coming exhibitions and aspirations for the future.

Painting, photography and sculpture are all strongly represented in this year’s publication, with many artists working in mixed media. Artists exhibiting at the London Art Fair include Fanny Wickström (Glasgow School of Art), Nicholas Johnson (RCA), Dominic Hawgood (RCA), and Oliver Hickmet (City and Guilds of London Art School).

“It’s about locating potential,” says Hammond, who compiles his top 40 in consultation with leading gallerists, curators, collectors and course tutors, following the most recent round of final shows and a lengthy series of studio visits. “I’m looking for artists who are in it because they couldn’t possibly imagine ever doing anything else. Avoiding a precise criterion keeps the process exciting.”

“Selection for the book can be a springboard, especially for graduates from the smaller schools, outside of the major cities” continues Hammond. “Perhaps they stand to gain the most from making the final 40. The Catlin Guide will introduce their work to a new audience and help facilitate partnerships with curators and collectors.”

The Catlin Guide 2015 continues to be the only publication of its kind. It has become established as an indispensable tool for followers of emerging contemporary art, and a collectible item in its own right.

As title sponsors of The Catlin Guide and the Catlin Art Prize, Catlin Group Limited – one of the world's leading insurers of fine art – continues to help realise the ambitions of promising new artists.

The Catlin Guide 2015 New Artists in the UK will be available on the Catlin Guide stand P25, in the Art Projects section of the London Art Fair. Following the launch, it will be available to buy for £12.99 from Amazon, Waterstones and selected booksellers.
