An intelligent, wide-ranging and exhilarating survey of largely unknown talent, selected by a distinguished international panel

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’ authored by Kurt Beers, Director of Beers Contemporary and published by Thames & Hudson, is the result of a major new project to find the 100 most exciting, up-and-coming painters at work today. This publication introduces and presents the work of a global cast of painters selected 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) offering an intelligent snapshot of the best new talent in painting from across the world, gathered through an open call for submission that drew over 4,300. 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 book features high-quality reproductions of each artist’s work, plus short texts including biographical information and quotations from the artists themselves that provide personal insights into their thinking and practice. Complete with resources including a global listing of further artists to watch, this is the definitive book on the outstanding painters of the future.
