Born 1984, Guildford, Surrey

MA Printmaking, Royal College of Art – 2008.

Ceal Warnants lives and works in London, UK. Using vintage illustration as a visual language to contrast society’s expectations of young people today with the imposing standards of the past, the artwork mainly focuses on printmaking techniques both old and new. Most recently, the motivation of the work has been around notions of protest, rights and freedom of speech under the collective banner of the “Protest Series”.

Collectors include Aimee Lou Wood, Sadie Frost, Laura Bailey, Theo Fennell, Dr. Alexander van Tulleken, Indira Varma, Amber Le Bon, Suranne Jones, Busy Phillips, Samantha Ronson, Martha Plimpton, Holly Tucker MBE and The Hon William Yerburgh. 

Commissions and collaborators include Black & Beech, Mother – London, Aimee Lou Wood, Jealous Gallery, the Big Issue, Coco Fennell, House of Vans, Art on a Postcard, Promising Young Woman (film) and Hope for Podencos. 

As featured in Dazed Digital, Grazia, RA Magazine, Time Out London, The Times Magazine, The Telegraph and Wall Street International.
