3033 - Drawing 3 - A List of Contemporary Figurative Artists

Drawing 3 Students: As we have been working with the figure throughout the semester, I thought I'd provide a sampling of contemporary figurative artists. This list is by no means comprehensive; it is simply an offering of a small fraction of contemporary work that continues to take the subject of the human form into new realms:

Dana Schutz

Marcel Dzama

Nicole Eisenman

Jenny Saville

Kehinde Wiley

Maria Lassnig

Marlene Dumas

Philip Akkerman

Yi Chen

Erik Parker
