London, a hub of art and culture, is one of the most appropriate places to launch and develop an art career. This city hosts some of the most remarkable arts as well as modern art and is well-suited for upcoming artists. For every painter, sculptor, digital artist, or artist who wants to have a career in the world of art, starting your career in London will always prove to be a wise decision. Here’s a comprehensive guide to help you navigate the process and make the most of the resources available.

To start with, there is a certain background that must be contemplated with understanding. London’s art scene has a rich and diverse choice of art spaces, ranging from the monumental institutions of art, such as the Tate Modern and the National Gallery, to hundreds of galleries, artist-run initiatives, and temporary exhibitions in pop-up locations. A global report from Art Basel and UBS in 2021 highlighted that the UK’s art market was estimated at about 11 billion US dollars. It is a $3bn project with London at the center of operations. The lively environment of this market provides countless chances for meeting other artists, potential buyers, and of course, selling one’s products.

With multiple shows and hundreds of artists where do you start? Well-curator & writer Anna Moss gives you a start with her 7 London Art Grads to see during the shows. 

With most of the graduate shows fast approaching, I wanted to highlight some of the London Grads I have met this year who have captured my attention and offer a more in-depth insight into their practice. Keep your eyes peeled for these talented newcomers! 

City and Guilds

City and Guilds is an outlier amongst other arts universities for its independent status and specialist nature, granting students enviable studio space and a high teacher-student ratio. Though their output is perhaps more orthodox (first-year students have to do weeks of intensive, 9-5 life drawing) two students sharing a space, Alice Delhanty and Ted Mckenzie, are leaving their mark on the institution and emerging circuit.
