About the book
The first volume of Vitamin P, published in 2002, inaugurated a vibrant period for painting. Since its publication, a whole new generation of painters has emerged, some inspired by the artists who appeared in that book, others taking cues from new sources. Vitamin P2 introduces this new wave of painters to the world.

The vast medium of painting continues to be a central pillar of artistic practice, and Vitamin P2 presents the outstanding artists who are currently engaging with and pushing the boundaries of the medium. Over 80 international critics, artists and curators have nominated the 115 artists who have made a fresh, unique or innovative contribution to recent painting. All of the artists in Vitamin P2 have recently emerged onto the international scene, and none appeared in the first Vitamin P.

An introduction by Barry Schwabsky, who also wrote the introduction for Vitamin P, provides a broad overview of recent developments in the medium while also looking towards its future.

Artists featured in Vitamin P2: Nina Chanel Abney, Richard Aldrich, Ellen Altfest, Hurvin Anderson, Juan Araujo, Tauba Auerbach, Karin Mamma Andersson, Jules de Balincourt, Antonio Ballester Moreno, Tilo Baumgartel, Hernan Bas, Michael Borremans, Mark Bradford, Kerstin Brätsch, Lisa Brice, Rafal Bujnowski, Stephen Bush, Varda Caivano, Brian Calvin, Gillian Carnegie, Sarah Crowner, William Daniels, Noah Davis, Philippe Decrauzat, Benjamin Degen, Kaye Donachie, Pierre Dorion, Milena Dragicevic, Thomas Eggerer, Nicole Eisenman, Ida Ekblad, Zhang Enli, Michael Fullerton, Wayne Gonzales, Adrian Ghenie, Mark Grotjahn, Wade Guyton, Josephine Halvorson, N.
