If you’re trying to get a grip at minimalism across the fields, considering to buy a minimalist piece, or looking to hire a minimalist architect or designer, this overview may serve as a quick reference.

Or consider these contemporary artists with a minimalist aesthetic:

Sculptor Terence Koh (Canada), painter Carmen Herrera (Cuba), land artist Wolfgang Laib (Germany), installation artist Martina Klein (Germany), sculptor Rachel Whiteread (U.K.), installation artist Lesley Foxcroft (U.K.), and painter and installation artist Daniel Buren (France).

And these artists’ works embody a minimalist philosophy:

Performance artist, video artist, painter and more Francis Alÿs (Belgium/Mexico), environmental artists well-known for their wrapping of buildings Christo and Jeanne-Claude (France, USA), painter, sculptor and installation artist Martin Creed (U.K), sculptor and land artist Andy Goldsworthy (U.K.), and installation artist, performance artist and sculptor David Hammons (USA).

And if I may, some special attention to my personal friends Adrian Clement and James Gatt a.k.a. Pineapple Park (Australia).
