A celebration of anatomy, flesh and bone by more than 60 international artists, including contemporary stars (Damien Hirst, Mark Ryden), social network celebrities (Jason Freeny), street art icons (Nychos) and a whole new generation of illustrators.
Since the first dissections of corpses, and the drawings which described the bodies, anatomy and art have always been connected. From the Leonardo da Vinci’s drawings to the Francis Bacon’s naked gures, artists have always been interested in the representation of the human as a biological being. Today, anatomy is back in contemporary art, following the rebirth of gothic and horror in the entertainment industry. This reference book includes at the same time the work of world renowned contemporary artists (Damien Hirst, KAWS, Mark Ryden), social networks stars (Jason Freeny), street art icons (Nyckos) and a whole new generation of illustrators.
