Ever since artists began creating art, they have incorporated sexual themes into their work. Ancient civilizations were replete with sexual or erotic imagery, and their relationship to sex and the human body is clear. It could be said that the beginning of all art is the human figure form.
The earliest record in history is the stone-age paintings in the caves of Africa.
One common passion captured here in the category of ICAS figurative art is the art of the human form uniting the talents of the distinguished group of contemporary international figurative artists. From serene and sublime portraits to quirky and surprising life studies, each artist offers their own unique style of capturing the human body. Each artist’s making their own statement and imprint are here to be discovered for your own appreciation and enjoyment of the figurative form at its “BEST”.
Creating connections – between artists & art collectors, galleries, students, art lovers and art buyers of today.
“The living model, the naked body of a woman, is the privileged seat of feeling, but also of questioning… The model must mark you, awaken in you an emotion which you seek in turn to express”. – Henri Matisse
