Get inspired by influential modern-day artists

Success in the art world is determined by the ability to use visual media to represent the moment, to challenge expectations and to create a defining, influential style.

The great art movements of the past have all rejected established styles and accepted themes. Prints of post-impressionist or pop artists may adorn many homes today, but at the time of their creation, the artistic ability was called into question. The reaction was often negative because it went against conventional norms.

Famous modern artists continue to deliver strong, influential messages, political statements and depictions of our time. Those with a passion for art should be inspired to explore the themes portrayed by Cindy Sherman, Adrian Ghenie, Anselm Kiefer and Njideka Akunyili Crosby. Or you may feel a natural draw to the message or techniques employed by Luo Zhongli, Cecily Brown, Mark Bradford or Albert Oehlen.
