“This volume is the 14th in the International Contemporary Masters series, our oldest art anthology. To date, World Wide Art Books has published a total of 28 anthologies, which we think is a not inconsiderable achievement for an art publisher.
In all these books, we have presented the work of nearly 4000 artists from nearly every part of the world, and have helped to launch many careers.
When we started this collection of books back in 2006, it was our conviction that there are no longer centers of gravity in the art world or dominant schools of schools of art. Rather, art has become decentralized and diffused all over the world, as it was long, long ago, but now it has become hugely varied, in genres, concept and approaches. To approach this enormous and extremely variegated mass, we decided to create an ongoing chronicle, each piece of which we would try to make as inhomogeneous and varied as possible, in genre, style, and origins of the artists.
After so many books and the acceptance the books have met with, we feel that our approach has been vindicated. The books have become a recognized standard, a resource for art professionals, collectors, art lovers and teachers.
We trust that this fourteenth volume of our oldest series will not disappoint. We present here the works of some 66 artists, each very different, and as usual from every part of the world. Some are quite well-known and established, others are just beginning their careers. But what each possesses is an original creative vision, and a proficiency in their chosen medium. Each deserves further examination and attention.
And so we continue.”
