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
There’s an expansive sense of wonder to the work of Los Angeles, California based photographer reallykindofamazing (aka Garrett Cornelison). Garrett’s images truly exemplify an adventurous spirit.
What day is it?
Maybe it’s just me (and I know it’s not) but even with post-it notes, wall calendars, digital planners, friend check-ins… it’s still difficult to keep track of what day it actually is! I find it somewhat comforting knowing other creatives are feeling the blur also.
Ah, those comforting golden tones and warm bright spots really set the right mood. Pressing into the glittering aura of summer brings a bit of joy to these monotonous days.
Aley Hanson | San Francisco, California
The images produced by Bay Area creative powerhouse Aley Hanson can be summed up in one word: FUN. Her bold color palette displays a playful celebration of her visual world, balancing an essence of positivity through empowerment and independence.
About the Curator
Hello there art friends. My name is Nathan Spoor, Head of Curation at Society6. I have over 25 years of 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 a member of one of the first groups of artists that took the plunge and joined Society6 in 2009. Since 2015, I’ve been 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.
