Current Masters IV

CURRENT MASTERS V. 4

Published in 2019


It is a great pleasure to introduce the fourth volume in the series Current Masters.

We originally conceived this title as an addition to our long-running series “International Contemporary Masters,” which would present younger master artists and new, fresh work by established contemporary artists. The series has taken on a life of its own, and is now in its fourth year, having won critical acclaim and an enthusiastic readership. Whenever we distribute this title at art fairs, our supply is invariably exhausted.

This volume presents the work of some 50 notable artists, as usual from nearly every corner of the world, and creating in nearly every medium and every genre of the plastic fine arts. As usual, our policy is to have a minimum of comment, and let the works speak for themselves.

We hope that the reader, or rather the viewer, will derive as much pleasure from perusing this collection as we did in compiling it.

International Contemporary Masters XII

INTERNATIONAL CONTEMPORARY MASTERS V. 12

Published in 2018


It is always a moving occasion to preface a new book, a new chapter in our ever-expanding chronicle of art from all over the world. Twelve years ago, we published the first volume of International Contemporary Masters, a slim volume with the ambitious goal: to be the start of a constantly lengthening and unfolding presentation of noteworthy art created in our times by artists from every corner of our planet. Today, with 12 volumes in the International Contemporary Masters series and 8 other anthologies, we can say that we have succeeded beyond our expectations. International Contemporary Masters and our other contemporary art anthologies Current Masters and Important World Artists have become a valued resource for art lovers, collectors, researchers, students and teachers, art consultants, gallery owners and other art professionals.

Both the subject matter and the reach of our books extend all over the world. It has been our contention from the very beginning that great art is not only being created in centers of the art world such as New York and London but in every continent and country, in remote villages as well as huge urban centers. It is a point of pride with us that we are helping artists whose work might otherwise remain unknown to broadcast it far and wide. International Contemporary Masters Volume 12 is not an exception to the rule. This book presents 53 artists from 27 countries, with creation in almost every medium of the visual fine arts that can be presented on a printed page. We believe the vibrancy of their creations speaks for itself.

Current Masters has the same distribution, primarily to collectors and art professionals, and it is a valuable resource for all art lovers. Like all our other books, it will be available both in print and also online. The book series ‘Current Masters’ serves as a visual montage of influential fine art in today’s world, as it exists across the globe.

In this spirit, this book is inclusive of both classic and contemporary art forms, united for the unique purpose of reflecting this moment in art.

Published in 2017

The second volume of Important World Artists features 72 uniquely gifted artists from all over the world, and presents works in all the media of the visual fine arts that can be presented on a printed page: painting, drawing, collage, sculpture, 2-and 3-dimensional mixed media, photography, digital art, prints and lithography. For each artist, we tried to create an individual presentation, however brief, that will provide an insight into their practice, career and unique character.  At the same time, we kept in mind the overall goal of creating a beautiful anthology of art, presenting the widest possible range of contemporary practices, thus creating a reference of high quality contemporary art from all over the world, for collectors, galleries, art consultants, interior designers, architects and other professionals concerned with fine art.  Also our books together constitute a syllabus which can be used for educational purposes, for the study of contemporary fine art, and in fact they are increasingly being used by educational institutions in many parts of the world.

Current Masters II

CURRENT MASTERS V. 2

Published in 2016


Perhaps it can be said that the only rule left remaining in the world of art is that there are no rules. Truly, there are no schools left, nor centers of arbitration, no guiding trends, just an invigorating anarchy. For this reason, we have only two very simple criteria in our selection for this book: rstly, there must be some kind of unique vision or idea from the artist, and secondly, the artist must show mastery of the medium she or he is working in. Beyond that, anything goes. We deliberately refrain from any kind of commentary, beyond that of the artist who created the work. We believe that it is best for there to be a direct communion between the work itself and the viewer, without any kind of intervention or mediation by third parties.

INTERNATIONAL CONTEMPORARY MASTERS V. 10

Published in 2015


We believe that our vision of publishing an annual chronicle of the visual ne arts from all over the world is being vindicated, and the mosaic we are creating is growing ever richer as time goes on. Our approach is an eclectic one; we are not aligned with any particular school or doctrine. On the contrary, we make a conscious effort to feature the broadest possible range of media, genres and styles. Our criteria are simply creative vision, originality and technical excellence in whatever medium each artist chooses to utilize.
