Figuration Libre is an art movement which found its roots in France in the 1980s. It means free figuration. Figuration Libre is basically a French equivalent of art movements from many places all over namely, Bad Painting and Neo-expressionism in America and Europe, Junge Wilde from Germany and Transvanguardia in Italy. The name given to the art movement was coined by a Fluxus artist Ben Vautier.

The group of painters or artists who formed the group for the movement were Robert Combas, Remi Blanchard, Francois Boisrond and Herve Di Rosa. The group was formed in 1981. Some of the other painters who joined the group at a later stage included Richard di Losa and Louis Jammes. In the following years, Figuration Libre exbited their paintings along with their American equals Keith Haring, Kenny Scharf and Jean-Michel Basquiat in New York, London, Paris and Pittsburgh.

The basic idea behind the Figuration Libre art movement was to do paintings that had a style of their own. It could be broadly described as Free Style. A great sense of praise has been accorded to Haring, Basquiat and Tseng for not adhering to Third World art forms unlike some of the more celebrated artists in the 20th century. On its initiation, Figuration Libre started out as an Underground Movement but has long gone above ground since then.
