Contemporary drawings

Contemporary drawing was introduced, and brought to the viewer, by the avant-garde artists of the early twentieth century, who, with the advent of photography, had to find another way of distinguishing themselves. These artists decided to revolutionise the usual aesthetic constraints of the time, and gave their vision of their art. Unconventional, and sometimes abrupt, contemporary drawing finds its place far from traditionalism, where the message is suggested, unlike classicism, where everything is revealed.

 

Contemporary artists use a wide range of media, from traditional tools such as pencil, charcoal and ink, to more modern techniques such as watercolour, markers, pens and pastels, and even unconventional media such as collage, sewing and digital art. Some artists use mixed techniques, combining different media to achieve unique effects. In this way, contemporary drawing often interacts with painting techniques, sculpture, photography, installation and even new technologies, to create works that are multiform, multidimensional and multidisciplinary.
