For some time in the late 20th and beginning of this century figurative art was frowned upon like conceptual abstraction's uncool old sister. Curator Alison Gingeras goes so far to say that "it was not okay to like it." But we think it is. Since Gagosian's famous figurative show "Unrealism" in 2015 and risen art stars such as John Currin and Kehinde Wiley, figurative art tackling the human form is fresher than ever. And this trend is also visible in the top art schools. We've put together a few of our favourite emerging artists from our platform below that show how excitingly varied the latest figurative approaches are. The conclusion from this is that as long as we stay human, we will explore and depict ourselves dealing with the pressing questions of our own identity. So buying a piece of figurative art will always be a good choice like buying a little black dress is.
