Ceal Floyer (born 1968 in Karachi, Pakistan) is a British visual artist known for her work in a variety of media that share a humorously wry approach to language and the semiotics of the everyday. In a catalogue essay for her show at Ikon Gallery in Birmingham, Jeremy Millar comments: "It seems clear, I think, that word-play is central to Floyer's work as both a generative and interpretive force...."

She currently lives and works in Berlin, Germany.
