Exploring the career of Alessandro Raho (b.1971) from the early 1990s to the present day, this monograph, the first of its kind on the artist, places Raho in the context of the period in which his career was established and has flourished.

A principal figure in the generation of contemporary artists leading the current revival of figurative painting in the UK, Raho graduated from Goldsmiths College in 1994. He was included, alongside contemporaries such as Damien Hirst, Tracey Emin and the Chapman Brothers, in the groundbreaking exhibition Brilliant! New Art from London at the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, in 1995. It was through this exhibition that the YBAs began to establish an international reputation, and it is now recognised as one of the defining moments in contemporary British art.

Fifteen years on, Raho's work offers a quieter sensibility to that of his YBA peers. Exploring the major themes and subjects found in his work, alongside his artistic and philosophic influences, this groundbreaking publication will appeal to experts and artistic enthusiasts alike and will be an essential purchase for all those interested in contemporary art.
