Painting is enjoying a remarkable creative renaissance in the 21st century. Many of the world’s leading artists now work in this most enduring and seductive of media. 100 Painters of Tomorrow is the result of a major new project to find the 100 most exciting, up-and-coming painters at work today.
Their work spans an extraordinary range of styles and techniques, from abstraction to figuration, minimalism to magical realism, and straight oil-on-canvas to mixed-media and installation-based painting. The 100 chosen artists, selected from more than 4,300 entrants, come from over 37 countries.Entries were judged by an international panel featuring some of the most prominent names in contemporary art, including the painter Cecily Brown, curators Tony Godfrey, Yuko Hasegawa and Gregor Muir, and writer-critics Suzanne Hudson, Barry Schwabsky and Philip Tinari.
