The Best Living Sculptors

The best living sculptors are a range of artists at the top of their craft, using new technologies; the contemporary sculptor is no longer confined to a single medium or style.
From found object magician Damián Ortega to the twisting work Anish Kapoor. While many also work on a smaller scale, the artists defy the convention of sculpture, constructing often expansive works that respond to or reflect their environments.  They have produced sculptures that defied gravity or questioned the future of formalism.
These sculptors’ works are examples of modern creativity and fantastic innovations.
