Home - Contemporary Figurative Artist Gallery & Directory


One common passion – the art of the human form unites this talented group of contemporary international figurative artists. From serene and sublime to quirky and surprising, each artist offers their own unique style for your discovery.

Creating connections – between artists & art collectors, galleries, students & art lovers.

This is a juried & curated site. All artists appear with their permission. Each artist presents artwork of high quality in their own distinct personal voice. You will find emerging artists, mid-career and artists at the upper end of very distinguished careers. Many are highly regarded in their chosen fields of specialty.

While some do not wish to be defined only as figurative artists, the love for the human form is what unites them on this site.

We currently number almost 900 and we hope to hit 1000 by end of 2013. Would you like to join us? Please submit your artwork.

There are several ways to find figurative artists on this site

On almost every page, there is a SEARCH widget on the sidebar. Write anything in here and see what comes up. Search by artist name, country, a more obscure medium or anything at all.
Enjoy a video of some of our works set to original music by Christie Grace. More figurative art videos here on videos page.
