3 Daring Contemporary Artists Helping to Promote the Art World

Quote of the day: 

Color is the keyboard, the eyes are the harmonies, the soul is the piano with many strings. The artist is the hand that plays, touching one key or another, to cause vibrations in the soul. -Wassily Kandinsky

Mankind's artistic development has come a long way. The earliest form of art dates back to the prehistoric cultures commencing in late geological history. It predates writing of any form, and encompasses the earliest forms of painting and sculpting. With time ancient art came about, due in part to the advancement of cultures and ancient societies in China, Persia, India, and Mesopotamia, to name a few.

Contemporary art, which is the art of today projects the major arts of painting, sculpture, and architecture, as well as minor arts such as ceramics, and decorative objects at an advanced stage. For one, the impact of digital technology on art is immense, allowing artists to express themselves in new ways than ever before.

Below are some of the artists breaking new ground with their work and setting artistic values for the present day.

Takashi Murakami is a Japanese contemporary artist who works in the fine arts and commercial media. He is well know for his works, and has carved an artistic style often collaborating with creators from other fields such as fashion and music. He has been described as the 'Warhol of Japan', and is one of the most renowned artists to surface from post war Asia.

His art style makes use of colours, and incorporates motifs from Japanese traditional and popular culture, with content often described “cute,” “psychedelic,” or “satirical”.

2. Nick Cave

Nick Cave is a American fabric sculptor, dancer and performance artist who is best known for his bright and whimsical wearable fabric soundsuits (sculptural costumes that covers the wearer's body in materials such as sisal, dyed human hair, beads, plastic buttons, feathers and so on). Using every day objects for his work, Cave can create an atmosphere of familiarity which he interprets into social and material culture.

  1. Love the variety you selected. You always inspire me!

  2. Sure designing in many a way. Wow indeed.

  3. they are all truly gifted in different ways. I like that mural a lot.. thanks for sharing these artists with us.

  4. Beautiful, artistic, fantastic. I love the designs.

  5. I'm not nearly as familiar with contemporary artists as those from past centuries. I enjoyed seeing the varied trio you shared here!

  6. All interesting and each a different concept.

  7. To each his own! It's wonderful that our eyes see beauty differently!
    Great variety.

  8. Some interesting creations here. Some I like more than others. Love that chair in the last photo. And you're right about technology. I know that "real" organists would this an abomination but I have an electric piano with a "Pipe Organ" setting and to my untrained ear it sounds quite close to the real thing. The exciting part is that I, a so-so keyboard player, can actually make this little piano sound like something you'd hear in Westminster Abbey!
