WHAT MAKES A CULT ARTIST?

Whether pioneering in their craft, fiercely and undeniably unique, or critically divisive, cult artists come in all shapes and guises. Some gain instant fame, others instant notoriety, and more still remain anonymous until a chance change in fashion sees their work propelled into the limelight.

In this nifty little book, Ana Finel Honigman handpicks a selection of inspiring artists you should know - from the iconic Salvador Dali and Frida Kahlo, to radical activists such as the Guerrilla Girls and Ana Mendieta. The artistic mediums explored are similarly varied, with sculptors, performance, graffiti and fine artists alike. From little knowns with small, devout followings, to superstars gracing the covers of magazines, each is special in their individuality and their ability to inspire, antagonise and delight.

Cult Artists is an essential addition to any art lover's library, as well as an entertaining introduction to our weird and wonderful art world.
