A new breed of contemporary artists is celebrating newfound international recognition for their style and approach to creating art that is sprouting from and largely influenced by visual subcultures. These young artists, who are associated with the widespread movements of Lowbrow Art and Neo-Surrealism, share similarities with the popular art movements of the 1960s and 70s as well as urban art. The term Lowbrow may sound self-deprecating; rather it represents a distinctive artistic composition and technical approach in which art is produced. The Upset documents this movement and the artists associated with it. Feeding off an array of popular subcultures, they often draw influences from anime, comic books, graffiti and street art as well as character design. The often figurative and narrative artworks featured here employ classical techniques with great skills to create sculpture, illustration, design and painting with the use of spray cans, sharpies and elaborate colour palettes on canvas. With the evolution of new media, artists are also blending these elements with various disciplines in contemporary visual art. Many of the artists in The Upset enjoy international fame and are represented in prestigious galleries and museums worldwide. The book also introduces a selection of promising talent who are breaking new ground, making it the perfect source book for those interested in fine art and discovering young artists.

Jetzt sehen die Glaubenssätze von Millionen Diätessern, Bodybuildern und Trainingsfreaks alt aus „Zu dick“, „nicht muskulös genug“, „keine Ausdauer“ – Unzufriedenheit mit dem eigenen Körper ist weit verbreitet und leider oft berechtigt.

Wer allerdings nur auf die Willenskraft und Leidensbereitschaft seiner Leser baut, scheitert in aller Regel. Deswegen lautet das Motto von Timothy Ferriss: Smart abnehmen und effizient trainieren. Lernen sie, welche minimalen Maßnahmen ein Maximum an Ergebnissen bringen – durch präzise Informationen über die Funktionsweise unseres Körpers und praktische Schritt-für-Schritt-Anleitungen!
