Inspiring Figurative Artists

Figurative artists who inspire me, and whom I often reference in my classes. This list of inspiring figurative artists is by no means exhaustive, but it is an enlightening compilation to start with.

If there are websites available for the following artists, you may visit them by clicking on the titles.
