Figurative art, is often taken to mean art which represents the human figure, or even an animal figure, and, though this is often the case, it is not necessarily so:
The next person that comes to mind is Lorena Angulo, whose work is clearly figurative and clearly representational. She has created figures that obviously represent people, but also symbolizes different actions in our lives. She has created quite an amazing little family!
Next in line would have to be Kest Schwartzman who has moved from the human figure to the animal figure that is worn as a mask and transforms the human wearing it!
How do you see your work? Does it naturally fit into one of these categories? How do you think about what you want it to represent?
