Book Review: World Art

Book Review: World Art

World Art

I checked out this book from my library’s new book shelf and am very glad I did. Besides highlighting the usual suspects as so many books do, this one features artists I had not heard of, that I now want to find out more about. The book does a good job summing up the trends and evolution of world art, and it is fascinating to trace each artist’s influences, both from the past and among their contemporaries. It made me wonder who I would claim as my influences? This book has the necessary helpful text, but is mostly images, which is as it should be in my opinion. I give it five stars.

See photos below of art and artists identified in this book that I’d like to learn more about. Let me know if you have information or resources to share about any of them. I’d love to see more of their work.

I work to amplify good wherever I find it. I love color, texture, beauty, great ideas, nature, metaphor, deliciousness, genuine spirituality, and exploring new territory. I encourage authenticity, nurture creativity, champion sustainability, promote peace, and hope to foster a new renaissance where we all are free to be our most fulfilled, multifaceted, and terrific selves.
