Specially for you, Artsper created a list of the artists who were a sensation during 2016 whose artwork you should not miss this new year.

Zao Wou-ki, was the artist who had the highest number of sales among Chinese artists of his generation, his work was exhibited at the Asia Society Museum in New York, he donated as well his private collection to the Musée de l’Hospice Saint-Roch d’Issoudun in France. Takashi Murakami, the “Japanese Warhol” with his acidulated pieces, exhibited his work at the Perrotin Gallery while French street artist JR did his monumental works for the Olympic Games in Rio. The return of scandalous artist Maurizio Cattelan to the artistic scene was accompanied by an exhibition of his work at the Monnaie de Paris. From his part, Christo published his latest extravaganza called “Floating Piers” and invited the public to take a walk along Lake Iseo in Italy. Tate Britain and the Centre Pompidou, finally, will pay tribute to the colorful and insolent art of British artist David Hockney in 2017.
