An eye-popping collection of fantastical, imaginative, pop- surrealist, and just plain twisted contemporary figurative art, executed with top- notch technique and mad skills by some of the finest and most influential artists working today. This book presents the work of 50 contemporary artists of the Surreal Art, Fantastic Realism, and Visionary Art traditions. The publishers have endeavored to compile a balanced publication, showing the extremes of both "light" and "dark" themes. The two extremes are usually presented separately, but here they are together under the umbrella of human experience. It features the work of extablished artists such as Ernst Fuchs, Alex Grey, Kris Kuski, Brom, and Robert Venosa, alongside that of relatively unknown, though extraordinary, artists, bringing a host of new artists into the public eye. The Metamorphosis series provides exposure for artists who express themselves imaginatively with exceptional technique and uncompromised individuality. Metamorphosis showcases this ever- expanding international movement of figurative artists who have resisted current trends in the art world and remained true to their artistic vision.
