Hello, I am a London-based abstract painter. In March, 2018, I was shortlisted for the Emerge Art Prize, a competition to find the best up and coming artist in the UK. My studio in West London is always open for visitors - send me an email if you would like to arrange a viewing of my work.
Brought up in Belfast, Warren was given a thorough grounding in painting and drawing from an early age by his cousin Brian Audley, a lecturer in art at Queens University. Frequent trips to the Antrim coast set in motion a lifelong love of nature – references to the vibrant colours of rural Ireland and endlessly kinetic power of the sea can be found in many of the paintings he produces.
As an abstract artist, Warren firmly believes in capturing the essence of energy, movement and spontaneity that nature, in its purest form, offers us all.
"When I first came across Warren King's paintings my gut reaction was one of excitement. His abstract and highly expressive works exhibit spontaneity filled with energy - and yet at the same time is clearly well considered. Marrying technical know how with the intangible, Warren's work demands repeated viewings.
I believe that Warren King is one to watch."
Janet Weight Reed, artist.
