Welcome to the wonderful and kooky world of University of the Arts London, which is opening its doors this summer for a series of graduate shows.

From the surreal to the sophisticated and the delicate to the grotesque, the work of final year students is on display in studios and workshops of the University’s six colleges across London from 13 June - 8 September.

Get a taster for the exhibits and see if you can spot the UK’s hottest new art talent, with our selection of some of the best graduate paintings, sculptures and designs, below.

ABOVE: Bird Family (acrylic painting) by MA Fine Art student Kristian Evju, studying at Chelsea College of Art and Design.

Kristian's delicately surreal drawings and paintings explore the way we filter and gather visual material on a daily basis.

ABOVE: Only Eleven Midnight Dancers by BA Fashion: Styling & Photography student Elliot Dollie, studying at the London College of Fashion.

ABOVE: Born to be Famous? by BA Painting student Julie Bennett, studying at Camberwell College of Arts.

The work imagines childhood portraits of some of the 20th century’s most famous artists.

ABOVE: Site specific painting by Art and Design student Jasmine Patel, studying at the Central Saint Martins College.

Jasmine has painted directly on the wall in Central Saint Martins’ building with the inner wall cut away to reveal brickwork and glass.

ABOVE: Embroidered bird by BA Textile Design student Catherine Frere-Smith, studying at the Chelsea College of Art and Design. Catherine creates prints of houses and birds that can be transformed into miniature models.

ABOVE: Hoodie Bird (pencil drawing) by MA Fine Art student Kristian Evju, studying at Chelsea College of Art and Design.

Kristian's delicately surreal drawings and paintings explore the way we filter and gather visual material on a daily basis.

ABOVE: Invader by BA Sculpture student Rebecca Turner, studying at the Wimbledon College of Art.

Rebecca explores the relationship we share with the space around us, with particular interest in disrupting it. She creates large astronomical forms from pulped paper that are wedged, balanced, or awkwardly positioned within the architecture, playing with the idea of defying gravity or succumbing to it.
