Current Masters V

CURRENT MASTERS V. 5

Published in 2020


This is the fifth 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 book comes out at a difficult time, as the whole world is being swept by the coronavirus epidemic. But in spite of all the fear, suffering and death, art continues to bloom, often under the most unlikely circumstances.

In the volume, among many other works, we feature the three winners of the contest organized by our online gallery Artavita, with the theme “In the time of the Coronavirus”, which had a huge participation. The book features very notable works by 75 other extremely talented artists from all over the world, in almost every medium of the plastic fine arts.

At a time, when visiting art shows has become problematic, the role of a book like this in showcasing worthy new art has become ever more important.

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

Important World Artists IV

Important World Artists V. 4

Published in 2020

This is the fourth volume of our series Important World Artists, following the positive acclaim that the first three volumes met. 

This volume presents the work of 70 outstanding artists, each of whom is at the height of their creative power. Almost all media are represented here – painting, drawing, mixed media, sculpture, installations, photography, digital art and more. And as usual in our books, almost every region of the world is represented.

We believe that this volume, as our previous ones, will constitute an invaluable sourcebook for curators, art consultants, gallery directors, interior designers, other art professionals, and also educators and students, as well as for art lovers everywhere. 

Like our previous books, this publication also should constitute a bright addition to the mosaic-chronical of contemporary art world wide, which we are creating and expanding with each successive volume of our books.

International Contemporary Masters XIII

INTERNATIONAL CONTEMPORARY MASTERS V. 13

Published in 2019


It seems hard to believe, but here we are writing the introduction to the 13th Volume of International Contemporary Masters! And if we add our other art anthologies, this is the 25th volume to be published by World Wide Art Books, over a span of 13 years. In these books, we have presented the work of over 2,500 artists, from practically every country in the world, about half of these in the International Contemporary Masters series.

We have printed a total of over 150,000 books, and the total readership of all the digital books numbers in the tens of millions.

This is not a small achievement.

When we first started this endeavor, back in 2006, our mission was to create a year to year chronicle of noteworthy contemporary art being created all over the world. We considered that there are no more centers, no more dominant schools or doctrines or directions in art. No orthodoxies, no judges, no arbiters. Just a vast diversity. Democratic, or rather, anarchic. 

Our approach was simple: to present the work of noteworthy artists from all over the world. The word “noteworthy”, of course, contains a certain subjectivism. For us, it contains two main criteria: something original, an element of inspiration, vision, originality. And secondly, a mastery in the artist’s given medium. But beyond this, to present each artist’s work without comment, to let it speak for itself.

Thirteen years later, we think this approach is vindicated. The books have become a recognized standard, a resource for art professionals, collectors, art lovers and teachers.

We intend to continue on this path as long as we can, and we hope that when we can no longer do so, others will carry the torch forward.

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.
