If there is a greater living artist than Hockney it is difficult to imagine who it is. Whether a landscape (or in this case seascape) or a portrait his vibrant, colorful work stands out. He is often referred to as a pop artist but his work transcends the boundaries usually put up by that definition. The consistency and variety of his work is also remarkable.
Chicago residents may recognize Plensa's style. Work by the Spanish artist were installed in the city's Millennium Park in 2014. Of course, this isn't the only place where his work has been installed; it may be easier to list major cities that HAVEN'T show his sculptures than those that have. His work is recognizable, in part, by how the figures seem stretched--almost impossibly so.
Katz work was all over Miami Art Week this year but these were mostly paintings. Richard Gray showed this sculpture which is very much within the artist's wheelhouse but is a different take on his style from what you usually see.
