8 FIGURATIVE CONTEMPORARY ARTISTS TO DISCOVER

Focus - -

From Cubism to Minimalism – though with the exceptions of Surrealism and Pop Art; and later, Neo-expressionism – most modern art movements have excluded the figurative. Today, however, the modern temples of art, starting with the Templon and Gagosian galleries, are embracing it with open arms. Contemporary art seems at the moment to be going through something of a period of infatuation with the figurative, or indeed with Hyperrealism even. There are several factors explaining this resurgence. With the history of art cyclical in nature, the contemporary art world’s saturation with abstraction, Neo-pop and conceptual art has pushed influencers and trendsetters to develop a renewed interest in the figurative. Additionally, a process of maturation is currently taking place in contemporary painting. Artists are abandoning the dichotomy between figurative representation and abstraction.

Artsper has selected eight artists whose work confirms the resurgence of the figurative in contemporary art.
