The Upset: Young Contemporary Art
A new breed of contemporary artists is celebrating newfound international recognitionfor their style and approach to creating art that is sprouting from and largelyinfluenced by visual subcultures. These young artists, who are associated with thewidespread movements of Lowbrow Art and Neo-Surrealism, share similarities withthe popular art movements of the 1960s and 70s as well as urban art.The term Lowbrow may sound self-deprecating; rather it represents a distinctiveartistic composition and technical approach in which art is produced. The Upsetdocuments this movement and the artists associated with it. Feeding off an arrayof popular subcultures, they often draw influences from anime, comic books,graffiti and street art as well as character design.The often figurative and narrative artworks featured here employ classical techniqueswith great skills to create sculpture, illustration, design and painting withthe use of spray cans, sharpies and elaborate colour palettes on canvas. Withthe evolution of new media, artists are also blending these elements with variousdisciplines in contemporary visual art.Many of the artists in The Upset enjoy international fame and are representedin prestigious galleries and museums worldwide. The book also introduces aselection of promising talent who are breaking new ground, making it the perfectsource book for those interested in fine art and discovering young artists.
