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 portraits to quirky and surprising life studies, each artist offers their own unique style of capturing the human body 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.

In late 2014, we currently number over 960. Would you like to join us? Please submit your artwork.
