About

Morag Caister (born 1994) is an artist living in Brighton, who graduated in Painting (BA), 2019 from the University of Brighton. Morag is interested in the things that link us together, and maintains a figurative and portrait-based practice focusing on people and moods often within relatable urban imagery. The work is repetitive with a sense of more than one day being described at a time, and an emphasis on routine and being on the go. The subject is always people and finding the authentic nature of ourselves through candid posture, body language and expressions, as a crowd or an individual. Routine travelling between Brighton and London from an early age built an interest in transport environments and congested city scenes.

Morag painted celebrity Maître

D'hôtel Fred Sirieix and Booker Prize winner Bernadine Evaristo as a semi-finalist in the latest series of Sky Arts Portrait Artist of the Year, and has been selected for multiple prestigious open calls including the Ruth Borchard Self-Portrait Award 2021, London Paint Club, ING Discerning Eye and the Federation of British Artists with Mall Galleries.
