With Painting experiencing somewhat of a come-back in Contemporary Art, a major new project to find the 100 most exciting, up-and-coming painters at work today, has resulted in the publication of a book and exhibition showcasing those chosen.
The book ‘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 (including the painter Cecily Brown, curators Tony Godfrey, Yuko Hasegawa and Gregor Muir, and writer-critics Suzanne Hudson, Barry Schwabsky and Philip Tinari) 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.’
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.
