The forty artists selected for the 2015 Catlin Guide have been revealed, a quarter of whom are UAL graduates. Identifying “the most exciting new graduate and postgraduate artists from UK art schools”, the Catlin Guide selection is overseen by curator Justin Hammond in collaboration with leading gallerists, curators, collectors and course tutors.

It demonstrates the calibre and creativity of UAL’s graduates, many of whom will play a major role in the future of their disciplines.”
The ten selected UAL alumni artists are: Helen Wilson, BA Hons Sculpture from Camberwell; Mette Sterre, MA Performance Design & Practice, Emma Corrall, MA Fine Art. Roderick Laperdrix, MA Fine Art and Lou Macnamara, BA Hons Fine Art from Central Saint Martins; John Baker, BA (Hons) Fine Art and Sisters from Another Mister, MA Fine Art from Chelsea; Jisun Choi, MA Photography and Rebecca Scheinberg, BA (Hons) Photography from LCC; and Sean Patrick Mullan, BA (Hons) Fine Art: Sculpture from Wimbledon.
