What is Contemporary Art? Question: What is Contemporary Art? Answer: This is an excellent question, and one that isn't asked often enough. Presumably, talking about contemporary art is another one of those art definitions we are all supposed to know -- because (heaven forbid) you wouldn't want to ask a "stupid" question at some art world function. (Well, you might, but I wouldn't. Anyway, the answer is divinely simple. Now, of course, if you are 96-years old and reading this (By the way, congratulations, if this describes you!) Modern Art: Art from the Impressionists (say, around 1880) up until the 1960s or '70s.Contemporary Art: Art from the 1960s or '70s up until this very minute. Here at About.com Art History, 1970 is the cut-off point for two reasons. Secondly, 1970 seems to be the last bastion of easily classified artistic movements. On a more serious note, while it may be hard to classify emergent movements, Contemporary art -- collectively -- is much more socially conscious than any previous era has been.

Irina Vinnik Portfolio This glass 'loaf' with detailed artwork is the most awesome thing we've seen all year This is amazing! Californian glassworker Loren Stump is a celebrated expert at manipulating the fickle and delicate medium of glass. Known especially for his work with murrine, over 40 years Stump has mastered the technique of layering coloured molten glass around a core and then stretching the whole thing into a rod. Once cooled and cut into, a cross-section of this rod reveals intricate patterns. Not only is Stump adept at making murrine that he can create figurative images within the cross-sections that are hidden until the rod is sliced, he is also able to combine the two-dimensional forms into three-dimensional objects. Some of his work is mind-boggling and it’s difficult to imagine how he even begins to create these classical pictures by mixing molten glass together. Each slice of this ‘loaf’ sold for $5000!

Unbelivable Zaria Forman Artworks The inspiration for Zaria’s drawings began in early childhood when she traveled with her family throughout several of the world’s most remote landscapes, which were the subject of her mother’s fine art photography. Her work exhibits extensively in galleries and venues throughout the United States and overseas. In addition to exhibitions, recent projects include a series of drawings that served as the set design for the classic ballet Giselle, which premiered in October 2012 at the Grand Theatre of Geneva, Switzerland. In August 2012 she led Chasing the Light, an expedition sailing up the NW coast of Greenland, retracing the 1869 journey of American painter William Bradford and documenting the rapidly changing arctic landscape.

Spectacular Moleskine Doodles Explode with Energy - My Modern Met Philippines-based illustrator Kerby Rosanes proves that doodling can be so much more than scratching unintelligible scribbles on paper. Through his Sketchy Stories blog, Rosanes shares his wonderful world of doodling in a simple Moleskine sketchbook. Equipped with an ordinary Moleskine, a few Uni Pin drawing pens, and his innate gift for drawing, the artist is able to transport viewers to a world where tiny, cartoonish creatures explode with gusto to make up larger entities. Each of the illustrator's complex and crowded sketches are filled with minute details that allow the eye to wander and discover new characters and designs at every turn.

Alive Without Breath: Three Dimensional Animals Painted in Layers of Resin by Keng Lye Singapore-based artist Keng Lye creates near life-like sculptures of animals relying on little but paint, resin and a phenomenal sense of perspective. Lye slowly fills bowls, buckets, and boxes with alternating layers of acrylic paint and resin, creating aquatic animal life that looks so real it could almost pass for a photograph. The artist is using a technique very similar to Japanese painter Riusuke Fukahori who was featured on this blog a little over a year ago, though Lye seems to take things a step further by making his paint creations protrude from the surface, adding another level of dimension to a remarkable medium. See much more of this series titled Alive Without Breath over on deviantART. (via ian brooks) Update: I have some additional details from the artist that I’d like to add here, as this post seems to be getting a lot of attention.
