Fine Art/modern artists


Could you please tell me a few names of popular modern artists that are STILL alive today?  Thank you!!

Hello Lori,

I hope you are doing well. Per your request; I have listed several modern artists still living, (at least at this writing), representing various movements from abstract expressionism to pop art. This is by no means exhaustive, but the list includes some of the more collectable artists. Some of the artists such as Robert Indiana are still living, but are no longer producing art.

Robert Indiana , Robert Rauschenberg,  Jasper Johns, Karel Appel, David Hockney, Zao Wou-Ki, James Rosenquist, Luis Molinari, Manolo Millares, Alexander Colville , Edward Joseph Ruscha,  Jim Dine, Ronald Brooks Kitaj, Pierre Soulages, Fernando Botero, Cy Twombly,(modern/contemporary).

Please let me know if you have additional questions.

Best regards,

Fine Art
