Contemporary

Contemporary art is the name for any art form that is produced in the present period of time. It is an extension of postmodern art and covers a wide range of genres and techniques. There is often confusion between ‘modern art’ and ‘contemporary art’ however it is generally deemed that contemporary art is any art form that has been created between the 1960s and this very moment.

It is argued that contemporary artists are much more socially conscious than their predecessors, with many creating pieces of art that are connected to current worldly issues such as feminism, multiculturalism and health concerns like AIDs

One of the most famous British contemporary artists is Damien Hirst. The internationally renowned artists is the most prominent member of the group known as the ‘Young British Artists’ and is often described as ‘one of the most influential artists of his generation.’

Contemporary artists are noted for rejecting the concept of mainstream art, instead choosing to embrace a variety of unique artistic styles. Popular influences include pop art, minimalism and conceptual art, with contemporary artists using a wide range of materials, sources and styles to create completely unique pieces.

With contemporary art covering so many styles and genres, it is so difficult to put a definition on it, so instead we suggest you take a look and see what it means to you.
