The Top 10 Sculptors Working Today

Artsy’s ten most popular living sculptors (based on user follows) are a range of artists at the top of their craft, from found object magician Damián Ortega to the ever-mindbending Anish Kapoor. Though many also work on a smaller scale, the artists on our list defy the convention of sculpture as standalone, constructing often-expansive works that respond to or reflect their environments. As the fourth-position Rachel Whiteread once said, “I don't want to make plop art—sculpture that just gets plopped down in places.”
