Vaughan Warren is a painter and lecturer who was born in Watford, Herts. He graduated and obtained his postgraduate diploma from the Royal Academy Schools in the early 1980s. Further studies took place at Hertford Regional College and Middlesex University (1998).
In 2002 he moved from Padstow to Newlyn 'to get closer to the influences of the Newlyn and St Ives schools'. In 2004, he and his business partner, artist Melanie Ann CAMP set up the PZag Gallery on New Street, Penzance and the pair produced some unusual and innovative exhibitions which included such subjects as the 'Art of the fashion design world' and shows of automata. The Gallery changed hands c.2008.
Warren strives to 'work towards an abstract beauty through paint and the image'. He has exhibited his paintings at the Padstow Arts Festival, and is a member of the Camelford Gallery Artists, who exhibit regularly in that venue. Other exhibitions have taken place at the Lander Gallery in Truro and Padstow Contemporary Art Gallery.
