9780500291634: Drawing People: The Human Figure in Contemporary Art

The act of drawing has long been considered the foundation of an artistic education, and the life class essential to the formation of an artists style and technique. Yet in the contemporary art world drawing is increasingly regarded as a medium in its own right, and the figure as a subject for ongoing exploration well beyond the sketchbook. Drawing People is a thoughtful and beautifully illustrated survey of the most compelling and inventive drawings of the human form being produced today. An introduction places the medium of drawing in its historical context, discussing its intersection with photography, painting, collage and illustration. Five chapters Body, Self, Personal Lives, Social Reality and Fictions include short introductions outlining each theme, followed by commentaries on individual artists exploring their style, ideas and techniques, accompanied by finely reproduced images of their recent work.

Review:

Featuring over 70 contemporary artists from around the world, Drawing People: The Human Figure in Contemporary Art is an in-depth look at how contemporary artists draw the human figure. Packed with drawings in pencil, ink, watercolor, charcoal and crayon, this publication dives into the world of drawing, looking not only at the medium itself but also into the artists individual styles, approach and narratives found within the works... An absolute must for any art students and practicing artists! (BMW Art Guide)

A comprehensive and impressive compilation of work from many different contributors, regions and cultures... this is a fascinating and rewarding read. (The Artist)

Roger Malbert’s beautifully designed book is a welcome addition to the relatively sparse English-language literature on contemporary drawing... Malbert’s selection of artists, known and unknown, establishes his thesis that there is a global reinvestment in the human figure as a source of political, psychological and, above all, satirical commentary. For once, in an art world that worships the casual gestural sketch, these are predominantly complex, skilful and ideas-based drawings, weaving witty, disturbing or powerful fantasies about aesthetics as well as abjection. They celebrate exaggerated graphic elaboration, and also colourful and open-ended anarchic invention. (Deanna Petherbridge The Art Newspaper)

An art student on any level will obsess over this thoughtful analysis of the most innovative drawings of the human form being created today. (Lalé Shafaghi Juxtapoz)

Drawing People rewards through its eclectic mix of artists using drawing as their base, and may inspire an expanding attitude towards the human figure from artistic readers. (Derek Brazell Association of Illustrators)

Drawing People is a rich and guttural study of the body. (Art Quarterly)

The work varies as one would expect from hyper realism to nearly non-representational. There is pure line, chiaroscuro, and color. Reproduction of the art is generous, both in printing quality and size. Each artist’s name, birth date, birthplace, and current location is provided. Some works speak eloquently of the artist’s ethnicity and others reflect this age of instant communication―the blurring of borders. (Jonathan Rickard New York Journal of Books)

a crucial guide to today’s best artists who draw (Alyssa Greenberg The Art Blog)

...a thoughtful and beautifully illustrated survey of the most compelling and inventive drawings of the human form being produced today. (Fadmagazine)

These weird and wonderful sketches of the human body reveal just what is possible when, pencil in hand, the artist lets their subconscious off the leash. (guardian.com)

Drawing is now back in the spotlight ... this book is asserting the importance of drawing in its own right, as an autonomous artform and not a means to an end. (The Independent)
