At a time when representational and figurative painting is enjoying a welcome return to popularity, Figurative Art Now offers new works in a wide range of mediums and at affordable prices. The exhibition covers portraiture, landscape, and still life. We’ve picked out themes including bathing, the impact of lockdown, pets, transport, the high street, and food to highlight in a series of blog posts to accompany the exhibition.

Featuring works by elected members of the FBA, prize-winners, regular exhibitors, FBA Futures alumni and artists new to Mall Galleries, this online exhibition of almost 400 works explores the breadth of representational painting, drawing, sculpture, and printmaking in the UK today.

Works were selected by an eminent panel of judges:

  • Jo Baring, Director of the Ingram Collection
  • Andrew Gifford, Artist
  • Clare O’Brien, CEO Federation of British Artists
  • Barbara Walker, Artist
  • Jonathan Watkins, Director of the Ikon Gallery

Prizes, including a solo exhibition at Mall Galleries and a £5,000 cash prize, will be announced online throughout the exhibition.

All works are for sale, with prices starting at £500.
