Ryan Burke1. RYAN BURKE

Make-up artist and photographer Ryan Burke is one of our favourite visual artists out there. Extra-ordinary make-up looks that’ll leave you speechless and in no doubt of their exceptional talent. “An ever-evolving exploration of the relationship between makeup, styling, and photography to create unique expressive characters unrelated to any particular culture, society, race, religion, or gender.”

2. FECAL MATTER

Fecal Matter

As the name suggests, these two artists and designers are nothing short of unique. Their terrifying yet sexy alien looks capture your attention immediately, with the intention to provoke you, make you think and look at beauty in a new light. This duo’s weird and wonderful world is something you do not want to miss out on, especially when you know it’s their daily attire.

3. SPIEL-SINN

4. EMMA ATTERBURY

Emma, we have never needed you more. The animated skeleton art of Emma Atterbury is comforting, beautiful and truthful. Through her art, she see’s into our soul and holds our hand through the more difficult times. Both prints and a plethora of merchandise are available to buy through her website.

5. FREDERICO CLAPIS

Warning: Frederico Clapis’ art will call you out on your (our) obsession with technology. Through hyper-realistic sculptures, Clapis explores our dependence on technology through a beautifully bleak lense. It’ll help you reflect on your own habits and routines, while demonstrating the power of art in communicating messages without words.
