A new breed of contemporary art is enjoying new-found international recognition for a style and approach that sprouts from - and largely influenced by- visual subcultures. The Upset documents this new movement whose works are often figurative and narrative, employing classical techniques with great skills to create sculpture, illustration design and painting. These artists often use non-traditional materials, too - spray cans, sharpies and elaborate color palettes on canvas.
In addition to the striking visual work, The Upset features portraits and in-depth interviews with artists who are creating outstanding cutting-edge contemporary fine art.
The Upset features many contemporary artists, including Camille Rose Garcia, Cody Hudson, Elizabeth McGrath, Faile, FriendsWithYou, Gary Baseman, Jeff Soto, kozyndan, Mark Ryden, Miss Van, Os Gemeos, Ray Caesar, Ron English, Tim Biskup, Travis Louie and quite a bit more.
