Since the first dissections of corpses and the drawings that described bodies, anatomy and art have always been connected. From Leonardo da Vinci’s famous drawings of man to Francis Bacon’s naked figures, artists have always been interested in the representation of humans. Today, anatomy is back in contemporary art following the rebirth of gothic and horror in the entertainment industry.
This reference book includes the work of renowned contemporary artists (Damien Hirst, KAWS, Mark Ryden), social media stars (Jason Freeny), street art icons (Nyckos) and a whole new generation of illustrators.
