Painting Today

Painting Today


Painting Today is a comprehensive survey of contemporary painting presenting the broad range of styles, materials and methods that comprise the art form. In over 500 illustrations, this book presents the work of famous and emergent painters active worldwide.

The cover is lined with Japanese canvas-like paper on which the playful typography echoes the behaviour of dripping paint. The title is foiled in Yves Klein blue, a hue which can’t be achieved using the four-colour printing process, in a nod to the importance of pigment in painting.
