The follow up to best selling art title DISRUPTED REALISM.

These 43 artists' works and Q&A insights connect us with contemporary painting that's “disrupted” stylistically, thematically, or both
• Appealing and relevant to modern art lovers, art students, and all interested in social media's impact on life
• A special look at artist Jenny Saville, the “great disruptor,” clarifies how this artistic current is unwinding

Reveals the contemporary art phenomenon of disrupted realism through the paintings of 43 artists at its core. Profoundly shaped by the events, forces, and overflow of today's disjointed, social-media-heavy life, these artists' paintings are “disrupted” stylistically, thematically, or sometimes both. They allow us to appreciate how art relates to the "super-fast, simultaneous, almost dizzyingly paced scrolling" of our lives.
