Famous modern artists

Many people are quick to dismiss modern art, but we live in a time of incredible art innovation. Many of the artists who are just making their name now are destined to become the Van Goghs and Picassos remembered by future generations. What are some of the most famous modern artists alive right now?

First, Damien Hirst. He is famous for selling a diamond studded platinum skull, and is an internationally renowned artist. Death is a common theme in his works, and many of his pieces are different dead animals preserved in Formaldyhyde. One of his best known pieces in this The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living, which is a tiger shark preserved on formaldyhyde.

Second, Sophie Calle is a French modern artist who focuses on ideas like human vulnerability, identity, and intimacy. She is known for her detective esque ability to follow around complete strangers in order to observe their private lives. As an abstract artist she often delves into examining interactions between people and place, the familiar and strangers.

Third, Gerhard Richter is one of the most prolific famous contemporary artists, whose pieces have sold many times for thousands and millions of dollars. His piece Domplatz, Mailand sold for 37 million in May 2013. He is the top selling living artist in the entire world. Richter is German and his work spans multiple genres of art and painting, though he is perhaps more famous for his ove rpainted photographs, and 4900 colors. He has been both an abstract artist and a more traditional portrait painter at the very same time, which is rare among top artists.

Fourth, Marjetica Potrc, from Slovenia, began her abstract artist journey in architecture and journeyed into art. She examines structures and situations in distant places and tweaks them to be more serviceable and livable. She has made art that helps people as well, such as dry toilets for Latin American slums.

Modern art artists, it can be seen, examine the world in a multitude of ways. Though their pieces are quite different from more traditional art expressions, they make people examine concepts differently, see information in a new way, and sometimes they even help things to happen in the real world. The abstract artist is an important part of art history.

Unique gift baskets

Before someone has a baby, their friends or relatives might throw them a baby shower that will provide them with lots of gifts and an afternoon or evening of fun before they have their child. Though they are a great event, sometimes, individuals who are heading to one will have difficulty coming up with a great gift idea. If that is the case, they might want to find somewhere to purchase baby gift baskets. Unique gift baskets are a great option and can be full of lots of items that both the baby and mother will find useful. As a result, baby gift baskets can be one of the most practical items that a parent receives before giving birth.

The number of different items that could be included in baby gift baskets are virtually limitless. While some might be full of practical items like personalized baby clothes, soaps, bottles, and even diapers, other baby gift baskets will have more fun items like toys and teddy bears. And, in some instances, individuals will have the ability to customize the baby gift baskets that they are giving as a gift. Because of their flexibility, they are a great option for anybody who wants to provide an expecting parent with a gift that they will surely appreciate.

When thinking about buying baby gift baskets, individuals will want to think about what the parents might actually need in order to keep their child comfortable and happy. For some, that might be real practical items, like toddler stools, and for others, toys that put a smile on the face of a child are the better option. Fortunately, there are baby gift baskets of both types. And, if someone can not decide on one big item, they can throw several items into a basket to make a unique and memorable gift.

Traditionally, baby showers have been geared towards the mother and are meant to help her, so, in addition to baby gift baskets, individuals might give presents that are specifically meant for women. However, there are gift baskets for women and gift baskets for men available, so any parent can receive some great items that will help them take care of their baby. Every family is unique when it comes to taking care of children, so, in many cases, both the father and the mother will need to have the items required to do so. Because of that, when purchasing baby gift baskets, individuals might want to keep both the father and mother in mind. This is a great source for more.

Beauty is the Eye of the Beholder

The world we live in these days holds a lot of new, interesting, and exciting things that allow us to express ourselves. With so many things out there that are customizable and trendy, it is often that some people perceive somebody else based on their hair, their smartphone even, and sometimes their choice of car. This is quite a bit different than the way generations before us grew up because most cars looked the same, school uniforms were quite common, and there was an overall sense of conformity. Today, we see all types of expression ranging from socks to hair color to tattoos that make us stand out from one another.

Modern art artists and their methods are very similar to the idea that trying something new and being yourself is quite a challenge. There are not many famous comtemporary artists in the mainstream topic of conversation around art these days. The reason is not that there are not any good famous comtemporary artists but more that there are so many modern artists out there, all of which are doing things that have rarely been tried before, that it is often hard for any one person to crack through the ceiling of being professional and famous. Contemporary artists are like flavors of ice cream. They all have their own unique flavor, unique taste, and individuality but, with so many different flavors and artists, it can often be lost that some very good art is being made because of the amount that is being made.

There are, however, things that famous comtemporary artists are doing that is paving the way for generations beyond to apply to their own art creation. An abstract artist of today, for example, is a direct result of the expression and individuality that Pablo Picasso brought to the game. Try locating local famous comtemporary artists by searching through newspaper event listings or, better yet; run an internet search for famous comtemporary artists or contemporary art exhibits in your area to see what you can find.

When it comes to the world we live in today, people might say we have moved away from the artistic side of life and have shoved our heads in a digital cloud, shrouded in working overtime with headphones plugged into our ears. The truth of the matter is that, despite the general consensus of a slowly decaying appreciation of the arts, there are more and more new ways of creating art and entertainment that we have never heretofore seen. The days of the Renaissance are long gone but there are still things being created that show us the beauty of having an imagination and putting your mind, heart, and soul into something you believe in. Take the time to stop, unplug those headphones, shut off your computer, turn off the television, and smell the contemporary roses that are being planted by modern art artists.

Whether you are a fan or not of abstract artists or famous modern artists, there are a lot of good modern art artists out there that are just waiting to be discovered. The most enjoyable part of life is finding beauty in things you never knew existed, never thought were possible, or the things that were right under your nose and never thought about. This is why modern art artists are using beer bottles caps, painted pieces of metal, and the sides of buildings to express their imagination and thoughts. Contemporary artists can sometimes be called ‘off’ or ‘weird’ but, in reality, we are all a little off and weird in the grand scheme of things. Working a day job, stuck at a desk, and locked inside a building with false light is weird to many people throughout the world and modern art artists are likely part of that group of people who would call you ‘off’ for living such a routine life.

What Does A Modern Artist Mean?

Written by Contemporary Artists on May 9, 2013. Posted in Homepage

Modern art artists

A modern artist, by definition, is an artist who focuses specifically on works that were popular from the 1860s decade to the decade of the 1970s. Somewhere along the line, the 1980s to the present day were not included in this representation of modern art, causing one to wonder: what does a modern artist do, and why are the most recent decades in our existence not considered modern art? Below, an explanation of what a modern artist does and what other popular forms of artists do as well, from those involved with contemporary works to those who focus their creations on art of an abstract nature.

To start to explain this concept and make the distinction among these various forms of art, a look at famous modern artists is in order. These modern art artists have created respective names for themselves as artists who understand modern art as an art form in and of itself. These artists are listed in alphabetical order on some websites that have the express purpose of highlighting these famous and not so famous artists. These sites are good too at naming all famous contemporary artists, who work on present day materials, thus answering the question above about what today’s artists represent.

These contemporary artists, then, are different from today’s modern artist in that they focus their energies on creating contemporary, or present day, works. So today’s contemporary artist is more interested in making a name for himself or herself in the area of today’s works rather than the works of yesteryear, from the 1860s to 1970s as previously described. Taking this one step further, today’s abstract artist is inherently concerned with creating art that is abstract in nature, meaning that the art created does not really have a rhyme or reason to it but that uses a visual sort of language, line, or color to create works that can exist with a certain amount of independence or freedom from the limits and constrictions of other types of art.

Of course, on these sites are listed abstract artists, and contemporary and modern ones too. From these sites, then, one could explore the artists making their respective impacts in these fields of art. From art students to those who just like to know the difference between a contemporary and a modern artist, these sites offer excellent clues into these worlds and into the respective art forms that each represents.
