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.

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.
