MY FIGURATIVE ARTWORK SELECTED FOR THE BOOK 100 ARTISTS OF THE MALE BODY BY E. GIBBONS



My artwork has been included in the new book 100 Artists of the Male Figure by E. Gibbons. This is the very first hard-cover book, EVER, dedicated to living artists of the contemporary male figure in traditional media like painting, drawing and sculpture. This book includes NO photography, NO digital imagery or cartoons, and NO erotic work.
 

Schiffer Publisher's description of the book
Images of the classical female figure are more prevalent in the contemporary figurative art world, as the nude male has been shunned as too potent or treated as a sex symbol. This book bravely showcases works by male and female artists from around the world that focus on this classic subject. Paintings, drawings, and sculptures display broad and varied styles, including portraiture, studies, Pop Art, abstract and photo realism. Read each artist's approach to the male figure through candid personal statements. Nearly 400 works capture masculine beauty in many styles. This resource brings balance to the figurative art world and is an ideal reference for artists, curators, dealers, students, and collectors.
