100 Great Master Artists of our Time

Master Artist Interviews with Cindy Wider

The 100 Great Master Artists project gathers together artists whom I consider to be some of the great living masters of our time. These artists have been invited from many different fields of creative endeavour, not only traditional visual art, but also professional illustrators, cartoonists, digital artists and more.

I hope you enjoy discovering more about these great master artists, their sometimes very personal stories and their sources of inspiration. In turn I also hope that you too become inspired to appreciate their art either as an aspiring artist or collector.
