Each week, as head of curation, I have the pleasure of exploring the treasure trove of uploads from Society6 artists to find the very best from around the community.
In this digest, allow me to do the discovering for you by highlighting new trends and rising artists that have caught my eye.

Through the Lens
This Week in Photography
Food. It’s what’s for dinner. Unless it’s the subject of colorful still life photography by Tori Dickson. Based in Seattle, Washington, Tori turns her lens onto her edible subjects to create scenes filled with a sense of drama, balanced with her eye for beauty—and a dash of humor, too.
These days, we’re noticing moments we may have normally missed at the speed of our “previous” lives. One moment artists are capturing is life not in their own house but within their neighbors’ houses—particularly as the sun sets and everyone’s house lights are turned on, illuminating scenes for the world to see. I like to think the images below are an affirmation that we’re all still here, waiting to rejoin the world and maybe even a new age of humanity.
Ballet Slipper Pink
Ballet slipper pink is a hue that brings to mind an open-armed hug—while also projecting a sense of strength in its exquisite gentleness.
Brandon Bidleman | Portland, Oregon
Bright pop design and bold illustrative lines inhabit the images of Brandon Bidleman. Based out of Portland, Oregon, this designer and illustrator brings a dash of retro sensibility and a healthy dose of humor to his visuals.
About the Curator
Hello there art friends. My name is Nathan Spoor, Head of Curation at Society6. I have over 25 years experience as an art curator for galleries and museums, I’ve written for several prominent art publications and published three books on contemporary art. I’m also a painter and one of the first group of artists that took the plunge and joined Society6 in 2009. Since 2015, I am the full-time Society6 curator, continuously thrilled to be on the forefront of surfacing so much amazing work, sharing rising artists, trending themes and color stories that spark inspiration and fuel the imagination.
Each day I dive into a sea of new art uploads on Society6, surrounded by a virtual treasure trove of artists from around the world sharing their original works paintings, photographs, illustrations and designs.
