An intelligent, wide-ranging and exhilarating survey of largely unknown talent, selected by a distinguished international panel
100 Painters of Tomorrow is the culmination of a major new project to find the most exciting, up-and-coming painters at work today. This major publication introduces and presents the work of a global cast of painters selected by an international panel featuring some of the most prominent names in contemporary art, offering an intelligent snapshot of the best new talent in painting from across the world, gathered through an open call for submission that drew over 4,300 applications. Their work spans an extraordinary range of styles and techniques, from abstraction to figuration, minimalism to magical realism, and straight oil-on-canvas to mixed-media and installation based painting.
The book features high-quality reproductions of each artist’s work, plus short texts including biographical information and quotations from the artists themselves that provide personal insights into their thinking and practice. Complete with resources including a global listing of further artists to watch, this is the definitive book on the outstanding painter of the future.
