The definition of contemporary is “living or occurring at the same time” or “belonging to the present”. Art galleries have coopted the word contemporary to only mean abstract art however, any type of art created NOW is contemporary art. I do contemporary art every day HERE and NOW!
There are many art galleries that show “contemporary art” but in fact all they show is abstractions while there are many artists creating contemporary representational art. We are the tribe that creates artwork in various mediums or multiple mediums at once.
The artist who currently creates representational art is a contemporary artist who creates works of recognizable images which many collectors like and even prefer. There is a wide variety of talented artists who create art they love and this gives art buyers and art collectors many choices.
