Roger Malbert’s ‘Drawing People’ Out Now


Thames & Hudson has published ‘Drawing People: The Human Figure in Contemporary Art’ by AICA UK member Roger Malbert. Launched at the Hayward Gallery’s Project Space last week, the book is a survey of approaches to drawing the human form.

Drawing People is a thoughtful and beautifully illustrated survey of the most compelling and inventive drawings of the human form being produced today. An introduction places the medium of drawing in its historical context, discussing its intersection with photography, painting, collage and illustration.

Chapters on Body, Self, Personal Lives, Social Reality and Fictions include short introductions outlining each theme, followed by commentaries on individual artists exploring their style, ideas and techniques, accompanied by finely reproduced images of their recent work.”


Roger Malbert is Head of Hayward Touring, Hayward Gallery, Southbank Centre, London. He has been a judge for the Jerwood Drawing Prize, and his writing on Art has featured in The Independent, Art Monthly, Times Literary Supplement, The Art Newspaper and Modern Painters.
