Description

A global survey of drawing today featuring over 100 contemporary artists Vitamin D offers a fresh and pioneering overview of the current state and underlying significance of drawing as an artistic medium. It highlights the originality and innovation with which contemporary artists in the genre - from across the world and in a vast variety of contexts - experiment with a diversity of styles and statements. Vitamin D features the work of 109 contemporary artists, selected by some of the world's foremost critics and curators for their unique outlook. It is in itself an artistic compilation of the endless possibilities that drawing offers an artist from any background. This book is a captivating composition of examples of the evolution of drawing in the twenty-first century. It reveals the energy of contemporary drawing, in a subtle presentation of the richness and versatility of the medium. With several pages dedicated to images of each artist's work and a deeply analytical parallel text, Vitamin D is at once a detailed reference book for art world aficianados and an absorbing introduction for newcomers to the scene. Highly informative and aesthetically stimulating, this book is an essential work in its own right, through its exposition of just how fundamental an artistic medium drawing continues to be.
