So often as artists we here “You’ll be famous when you die” or “Your art will be worth a lot of money when you die”. Its a common misconception, and often a joke, that artists all live in poverty and obscurity until after their deaths when their work is suddenly discovered and realized for its value.

As a younger artist for many years I held this belief as well. As I started getting out more in the art world, going to shows and keeping up with art related news, I began to realize there are many very talented painters alive, well and significantly recognized for their work.

Here is a list of some of my favorite living artists. Enjoy!
